It *did* work for me, the problem was that all that I could get was:


The port is expecting:

      ^       ^

Or rather it was when I sent my original email. Now it is expecting:

l_fc_pc_8.0.039.tar.gz l_fc_pc_8.0.039_pe044.1.tar.gz.

I have verified in the intel developer forums and it does appear that this
is indeed the paid-for version.

Not that I'm complaining mind you - it is a real treat having a port for
this such that we can generate FreeBSD binaries. The problem is that I
don't think my boss will spring the $700 for the Intel compilers, but as
we are a non-commercial institution we DO qualify to use the free version
as much as we want.

What would be a *super* treat is to have 2 ports, one for the
non-commercial, lagging slightly behind version and one for the current
version. But since I haven't heard back from the port maintainer for the
current one, I somehow doubt this will happen.

Strange - I did this also while Intel's servers did take time to
communicate and it worked.

I should have posted the direct link, which is to here:


You mention logging into premier.intel.com - I never did that, only used
the clickthroughs on the site to download the free version, and even that
requires registration and once you've registered they send you the URL.
I believe that is because you paid for the compilers, right?
