I've just installed Intel 8.0 compiler for Linux and make a first attempt at
creating a toolset for it.

I've got some questions, and hope somebody with more knowledge of the compiler
can answer more quickly than I can google for answer.

1. I've made the toolset by inheriting from gcc. This works quite nice, except
that I get errors on options like "-finline-function", "-s" and
"-Wno-inline". I can change those, but I wonder if the idea of inheriting
from gcc is right? Anybody knows if intel and gcc are sufficiently compatible
in their options.

2. I get warnings like:

a.cpp(11): remark #1419: external declaration in primary source file

on innocent code like

int foo();

and also similiar remark 1418. They are printed to stderr, which break tests.
For a while, I've just disabled both warnings, since they don't look usefull
at all. Is that bad?

3. Does Intel use GNU linker? I don't see any separate linker, but I don't see
GNU linker mentioned in docs either.
