The Compile tool should work fine in such environment. For clustering,
however, you'll need to decide on which authentication scheme to use
and to manually configure that in Gobo. I used to manage a cluster at
the university based on NIS+/NFS with Gobo, and I can only remember
boot time mount commands failing due to the head node not being
available. I had to write a few scripts instead of relying in fstab
for network mounts, but it worked pretty well in the end.
