Nope. I tried ICC 9.1 and it still totally breaks libmpeg2.

ICC 9.1 chokes on a fair deal of inline asm. GCC isn't that better (cf

ICC is a wonderful compiler... but it's not use by most folks around
here, so it's not supported up to the point that it's usable to
compile software such as FFmpeg or MPlayer. x264 compiles fine out of
the box though.
At some point, I tried to see what could be done to add support for
ICC but I guess I wasn't motivated enough to face ppl's flames.
