To save others from wasting a lot of time, Intel 7.1 used with VC++ 7.1 has
serious problems with non-static builds (/MD or /MDd options). Link errors
on standard library components result if any of the /Z7, /Od, or /Ob0
switches are used, and if the /Zc:wchar_t switch is not used.
These are Intel problems, and are also being reported on the Intel forums
by IDE users.
As a workaround, I guess we could try static linking. But I don't know if
it is worth it; the problem seems serious enough that you would think Intel
will have to get a fix out PDQ. OTOH, the problem seems serious enough that
Win32 Intel 7.1 shouldn't have been shipped in the first place. As more
non-broken compilers become available, my tolerance for broken ones is
