Yeah, this is exactly what's going on. Boost.Build is also passing at least
one non-existent command line argument (/favor:blend) and it is trying to
run the iclvars.bat script (or w/e it's called) in the incorrect location
(this is the root of the problem I believe, but I haven't gotten around to
fixing it since I started porting to intel a few days ago as it's only a
2nd tier compiler for me).
