[openssl.org #1095] IA64 Linux: Intel compiler name change

Rich Salz via RT

Reference: [openssl.org #516]

A couple of years ago, I submitted a patch to the Configure
script to support the Intel compiler on Linux/IA64, adding a new

Since then, in release 8 of the Intel compiler, the name of the
compiler drive has been changed from "ecc" to "icc" (matching the
name on ia32).

I've attached a patch for Configure that adds a new configuration,
"linux-ia64-icc".  The only change is the name of the compiler.
This is based on openssl-SNAP-20050602.tar.gz.

The "linux-ia64-ecc" is still there, since the previous version of
the compiler is presumably still in use.

The "ecc" command still exists in release 8; it invokes the compiler
like icc but produces a warning message on stderr:

ecc: warning: The Intel C/C++ driver is now named icc.  You can suppress this message with '-quiet'

I don't know whether this has any effect (I've seen cases where
configuration scripts are confused when the compiler writes anything
to stderr, even if the compilation is successful).

I haven't actually been able to test this patch, since the latest
release doesn't build on IA-64.
