Compile BRL-CAD with Intel Compiler

completed by: Jacob Burroughs

mentors: erikg

BRL-CAD builds pervasively on a number of different operating systems, hardware, and compilers.  We actively seek out new compilation environments and like to get them working as best as we can.  We regularly build with Microsoft Visual Studio (the professional one you have to pay for), GCC, and a number of other compilers.  One we have not tested in a long time is the Intel Compiler (available for Windows and Linux)

This task involves attempting to compile BRL-CAD using the Intel Compiler.  You'll need to download our source code, CMake, and ICC.  Compile BRL-CAD using ICC and keep notes of everything you do along the way.  You'll report back any failures and otherwise document all the steps you take.  Submit a complete build log and your notes documenting everything you did.

We will create follow-on tasks if you make any fixes that get the build working.
