What Yair said and...

I've run a NetBSD compute node in our test cluster alongside FreeBSD and 

Once I get the pkgsrc (http://pkgsrc.org/) package updated and tested, 
it should be pretty simple to run a heterogeneous cluster.

Just deploy SLURM via the same pkgsrc snapshot on all nodes and you'll 
have essentially identical installations all around.

Pkgsrc supports just about any POSIX OS and architecture (some better 
than others, of course, with NetBSD and Linux at the top).
