[GE users] new exec host grief

Trying to add a new execution host to my cluster is proving a shade
awkward. I've added the new host to the grid according to the 
documentation, doing qconf -mq all.q, qconf -mhgrp @allhosts and
even qconf -ah <new hostname>.

I've added the relevant /etc/services entries on the new box, and
given it the cluster name and qmaster name. It can resolve the
qmaster name as is thanks to /etc/hosts.

On the master I can see the host in the output of qstat -f, ie:

all.q at minitel                  BIP   0/2       -NA-     -NA-          au

.. but starting the gridengine daemon on the new box gives:

root at minitel:/etc/init.d# ./gridengine-exec start
error: can't connect to service
error: can't get configuration from qmaster -- backgrounding

error: getting configuration: unable to contact qmaster using port 701 on host "linux6"

.. every time.

Can anyone suggest a possible avenue of problem-solving opportunity?
