The easiest way is to do it with bjam:

First edit user-config.jam to point to the location of your Intel compiler
installation, mine has for example:

using intel-win : 10.0 : "c:/program
files/intel/compiler/c++/10.0.025/ia32/bin/icl.exe" ;

Then cd into the root directory of Boost and invoke:

bjam --with-regex intel stage

and the built libraries will be copied to ./dist/lib

HTH, John.

PS, if you want to go down the makefile route: use the vc8 makefile as a
basis, and replace "cl" with "icl". You may need to change the mangled name
of the libraries as well for auto-linking to work, but you should be able to
figure it out :-)
