Removal of ICC (intel compiler) bits from mk
dougb at FreeBSD.org

I think sometimes we act as if code that is removed from the tree is
gone forever, with no possibility of it ever returning. I don't
understand this attitude. :) If something is unsupported it should be
removed, Q.E.D. There is no reason to think of possible reasons that we
might want it to stay.
Meanwhile, FYI, ports/lang/icc7 has been marked DEPRECATED since 8/8
with removal scheduled for 2010-09-01 based on the distinfo not
containing a SHA256 line and (AFAICS) no distfiles available. If and
only if someone wants to actively develop a newer version the old port
will remain in the repo and can still be used as the basis of a repo
copy to a newer version if that is necessary and/or desirable.
