According to the OpenPBS website, Mac OS X is unfortunately not 
supported, though in PBS Pro it is. webbioc has only been tested with 
PBS Pro on a Linux cluster, and I didn't personally set up PBS on that 

It is possible that OpenPBS will compile and work with Mac OS X. 
Spurred by your question I am currently exploring that possibility. 
There are of course other free batch job submission tools that are 
compatible with Mac OS X, for instance the Sun Grid Engine. We should 
be able to work something out. Let's take that discussion off the list.
