It's easy. If your compiler produces anything else besides OBJ, you need to
specify that when declaring generator.

This should become:
type.register LIS : lis ;
generators.register-c-compiler icc.compile.c : C : OBJ LIS : <toolset>icc ;
V2 will clean "lis" file automatically.

Do you want a specific prefix? Always? This can be done with
generators.register-composing icc.archive : OBJ :
If you want more flexible logic, could you please give more details?
