I recently installed the port, which has icc 8.1, but it fails to
compile even simple C++ programs, because it cannot cope with the
libstdc++ headers from g++ 4.2.1.
You have to do all kinds of tricks, such as installing the gcc 3.4.x
port, and pointing the Intel compiler to its libstdc++ headers and
libraries, or nothing will work.
Updating that port to icc 11.1 is probably not a trivial task, and
making sure it compiles programs properly is even trickier... :)
