Yep, first the `arch` script needs a small patch in /gridware/sge/util/arch for newer kernels:

   case $osrelease in
   2.[46].* | 3.*.*)
      # retrieve os release. We use 2.4 on kernel 2.6 machines, unless
      # we have binaries installed that have been built for 2.6
      case $osrelease in
      2.4.*)
         lxrelease=24
         ;;
      2.6.* | 3.*.*)

and execute it on the new machine to check if it retrieves a valid architecture now.
