./configure -rsh=RSHCOMMAND   

>From the configure.in:

"The environment variable 'RSHCOMMAND' allows you to select an alternative
remote shell command (by default, configure will use 'rsh' or 'remsh' from
your 'PATH').  If your remote shell command does not support the '-l' 
(some AFS versions of 'rsh' have this bug), also give the option
'-rshnol'.  These options are useful only when building a network version
of MPICH (e.g., '--with-device=ch_p4').
The configure option '-rsh' is supported for backward compatibility."

SO rsh is the defautl behaviour.

You can compile with the rsh command set to the rsh under $SGE_HOME/mpi
