An easy test would have been:
  pkg_version -t icc-8.0.066.p067.1 icc-8.0.066_1

Also, the latest version of portlint should warn you, assuming you have
a recent INDEX or run chkversion.

You can either bump PORTEPOCH, which is easy and allows you to basically
count version numbers any way you want (they you don't count), or try

  pkg_version -t icc- icc-8.0.066_1
