icc rocks on MC-EZBC

I tried the Intel C/C++ compiler (icc), 10.1.017, with MC-EZBC, see also my post on PGO with gcc.

icc 10.1.012 failed to compile the code, probably some compatibility issue with the gcc 4.2.3 installed on my system. The auto-vectorizer has to be disabled (-no-vec), otherwise the executable crashes.

Apart from that, the results are excellent (decoding 32 frames of the Foreman sequence, Intel Core2 Duo 2.66 GHz):

The fastest gcc results is 10.2 sec.
