Not quite, only the tests that were exposing the "supposed linking
problem" (
are marked.

I specifically worded it as "regression runners and library
developers" -- in the post referenced in the note Ralf indicates that
in his experience Intel 8.0 requires special setup which might have
been all that was needed to fix this -- but I meant Martin and you.

No objections from me; it _was_ meant as a temporary markup for the
current (at the moment) release cycle only.
