Hi Michael,
thanks a lot!

Let me start with some nit-picking ;-)

1. How the version is to be specified? As "80" or as "8.0". At least all
other toolset use the latter variant.

2. My copy is installed at /opt/intel_cc_80/bin/icc and you toolset assumes
different path. Is that the "new" scheme you mention above?

3. The path passes to the 'init' rule is required to end in slash, while other
toolsets are happy either way.

4. Finally, I think the the first declared version should become default one.

And now the really good news. I've run all V2 tests and see only three

1. dependency_test
I don't know why it fails, but the test is a bit fragile and often fails on

2. default-build
Here, the compiler emits the following warning:

icc: Command line warning: ignoring option '-O'; no argument required

it happens only for "optimization=space", where the command line looks like:

/opt/intel_cc_80/bin/icc -c -xc++ -Os -g -Ob0 -c -o
"bin/intellinux-80/debug/optimization-space/a.o" "a.cpp"

library_order. Any ideas what to do?

3. expansion
This fails since now I have to specify "intellinux-80" as toolset when
invoking tests, and the test system does not like it. I suspect this means
that this newly added test is broken whenever you specify toolset with
version, and is going to look into it.

This means that intel toolset is ready to be added! We only need to decide
what to do with the glitches I've listed above.

I've comitted that change to gcc.jam.
