If your jobs are relatively short lived (not days long), you could do this with
ANTS (http://unthought.net/antsd) and a Makefile to get the dependencies right.

I think that could be a simple and efficient solution to your problem - but
note that ANTS is not meant to be a real batch queue system, and it therefore
does not have features such as queues, accounting, etc. etc.
