To be fair to the Torque devs I did say that the
release versions don't have GSSAPI support, but
there is a GSSAPI branch in SVN.

But I don't think it gets much development and
probably even less testing which leads to a
chicken/egg situation.  Nobody is going to deploy
Kerberos on a cluster if it'll break the queueing
system and nobody will get GSSAPI support into a
queueing system if there's not clusters needing it
which can tolerate downtime and lost jobs to get
it working.
