The main problem I see is that there are two compilers involved each of
which has to be configured. In theory it's possible to combine each
version of Intel compiler 6-8 with each version of VC 6-7.1. These sets
create dependencies that are not handled perfectly at the moment IMO.
Furthermore, (when the other problems are solved) there should also be a
toolset for Intel+STLPort (...which I tried to write for 1.32 but I gave
up due to lack of time).

I can't list many details at the moment, I've to look into it myself again.
