Well, the problem is a new user will expect that he can just link
against a boost library from MSVC for example and freely switch between
the Intel and Microsoft Compiler -- which is clearly not possible if
Intel-generated libraries require the use of _SECURE_SCL=0. Even with
clear documentation, lots of people will run into this, as -- for the
better or worse -- _SECURE_SCL=1 by default.

The best is to report this to Intel/Dinkumware, and let them sort it out
as it affects basically every user who has the bought the Intel Compiler
for MSVC -- which has been done already IIRC.
