[gridengine users] Accessing qacct accounting file from login/compute nodes

We actually don't have a shared $SGE_ROOT, so that in the event of
network/storage trouble the binaries and libraries are still accessible. We
do have $SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL on network storage via a symlink, so the
accounting and reporting files are accessible. We also send the accounting
and reporting files to Splunk so we can generate some dashboards for our
useres.
