transfer_executable = false
copy_to_spool = false

Though you may want to consider transfering a shell script as the executable
that then calls Maya. You can use 
STARTD_EXPRS to put things into the machine classad of a mchine, and the
$$() macros in submit files to extract information from the machine ad.


(on the execute machine)
MAYA_LOCATION = /usr/macsox/maya/bin/maya

in the submit file:
environment = job_maya_location=$$(MAYA_LOCATION)
executable = job.sh

in job.sh


echo Maya is installed in $job_maya_location
exec $job_maya_location argument1 argument2 argument3
