Intel C++ compiler on Windows depends on VC and it is important that this is
reflected in the test results. For example, both slapeta-V2 and
Huang-WinXP-x64 test Intel C++ 9.1 on windows, but one pairs with VC7.1 and
another uses VC8.0. The test results are very different. One way to address
is to add <compatibility>vc(8 or 7.1) when configuring the toolset. This
way, the results will show up as intel-win-vc8-9.1 and intel-win-vc7.1-9.1,
respectively. And these two toolsets should be added to the required
platform so they will be included in the release view.
VC8 no longer supports single-threaded static-linking libraries and this is
causing a lot of inte-win-vc8-9.1 tests to fail. intel-win.jam should
probably be changed to reflect this.
