on October 22nd MPICH2 1.3 was released, which features a new Hydra startup as default with builtin tight integration into SGE. You don't need to specify anything for the configure command to build MPICH2 with this feature and can use entries like "/bin/true" for start/stop_proc_args for your PE. The old startup methods mpd, smpd,... will be removed from MPICH2 according to the MPICH2 mailing list.

To avoid all the convoluted scripts which were necessary in the past to achieve a tight integration, it's best to upgrade to this release.
