As I said, I didn't implement that wet. My cluster is integrated in 
a world wide grid running Globus which lauches a jobmanager script 
everytime a job is submitted. This jobmanager is a wrapper which, 
in principle, will copy all the executables to the execution nodes 
before running the job (and deletes them at the end). This is how I 
intend to do it...

Regarding the library binaries, they are all copied to each one of 
the exec machines.
