Has anyone managed to get much compiled using Intel's compiler? The benchmarks are certainly looking impressive with version 6.

It seems that libtool can't handle icc, so just about any builds including shared libraries will fail. What's the workaround for this?

I have been tempted to try icc just for the fun of it, but there is one major issue to take into account: icc is only for x86 processors. I'm not interested in immediately alienating a portion of my audience just by catering to my own architecture.

The other thing is that it's perfectly well possible to build shared libraries without libtool- it's just a little easier. Unless you want to build the shared libs on multiple architectures, in which case it's significantly more complex.

This was discussed a while back on the mailing list. Might check the archives for more info.

Additionally, I seem to remember that one of the glaring problems with icc was that the kernel wouldn't compile correctly with it.

It was mentioned a while ago, but this was before the new version was released, which can compile the kernel and is mostly compatible with gcc.

I doubt anybody expects a distribution compiled entirely with icc rather than gcc; certain packages would seemingly gain a large performance boost though.
