Is it really necessary to remove them from cdefs.h? If someone takes  
parts of our source and wants to compile them on linux or windows with  
icc, the icc parts in cdefs.h are a valuable part to have.

Info: AFAIR I didn't add icc stuff to csup, and AFAIR csup was added  
when our icc in the ports collection was outdated, so I assume someone  
tested csup with icc on linux and addid this stuff there. Removing it  
from csup seems to be a step backwards to me in this case.

Regarding the build infrastructure part I just skimmed over it, and  
the math/std* headers and 1s-complement-checksum part looks ok to me.


Intel CPUs are not defective, they just act that way.
