Hello

I'm trying to build Firefox with intel icc 10.0 on Mac OS X 10.4.10. Both latest trunkt (as of today) and 2.0.0.4 fails with:

My mozconfig only sets CC and CXX to icc and icpc and sources the firefox mozconfig.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check out the latest sources from CVS
2. Create a mozconfig that builds firefox and sets CC=icc CXX=ipcp
3. build

Another, probably unrelated problem, when buildning with icc on OSX is that you get tons of these warnings:
icc: command line warning #10006: ignoring unknown option '-no-cpp-precomp'

-no-cpp-precomp seems to be specific to apple's gcc.

Also completely disabling optimizations (-O0) doesn't seem to help.
See bug 403224 for a way to build just spidermonkey with ICC. Confirming, as there are definitely other issues.
