Removal of ICC (intel compiler) bits from mk

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.
