[Mplayer-dev-eng] Intel C Compiler

Just get it working, and it's great! At least for Intel CPU's (p2/p3)!
Compiled opendivx/postprocess.c with it (other files are still
gcc-compiled), and get 20% speedup with -pp 63 (playing opendivx avi)!
Unfortunately(?) it doesn't (yet) support AT&T style asm inlines, so
compiling the whole mplayer with it not yet possible.
Maybe we should make a wrapper script which checks for at&t asm in the
file, and uses intel compiler if possible.
(maybe using a simple trick: put a special comment line in the first
line of these files, for example: //--use_gcc_for_this-- )
Another idea: we can make precompiled binary version of mplayer using
the trick of 'Xserver link-kit'. I mean compiling libs like libmpeg2,
opendivx etc. for each CPU (486,586,586mmx,p2,p3,k6,k7) type, while
keep system-dependent things (like libvo, mplayer.c etc) in source form.
