I'm trying to compile SOpenPBS on Cygwin. SOpenPBS is the Scalable Open
Portable Batch System ( And I need some advice.

I have it compiled and running, with some ugly hacks. First, the daemons
want to run as user root. I can change this in the source to my login, but
I'd like to eventually make it available to others, so this is not a good
solution.  I'd like it to work similar to sshd or cron and have it run
using cygrunsrv, but I don't know how to do that. Any advice? Anyone
interested in using SPBS on Cygwin and/or helping me to port it?
