Intel C++ on Linux is called "icc". ("icl" is the designation of Intel C++
on MS Windows). Please don't confuse me.

Please also have a look at the compiler output, available via the links
on the boost compiler status web page.

Note that icc gets a segmentation fault in some internal component while
compiling about every second source file. This appears to be due to
the coupled preprocessor/compiler. I'll commit regression test results
soon which have the preprocessing and compilation stage decoupled
manually (via compiler.cfg). This fixes most of the failures.
