We have regular reports of users running into problems due to execd spooling on
NFS, like performance problems, overloaded NFS server, or permission problems.

The execd installation should examine the execd_spool_dir (we have an utilbin
binary to analyze filesystem type), if it is on NFS, the install procedure
should explain the possible drawbacks, ask if this is done intentionally and
allow to change the spooldir.

Install script should also suggest an apropriate default (e.g. /var/spool/sge).

We could also consider to have execd output a warning message if it is
configured to spool on NFS.
