Great!  Many thanks.  In the meantime, I tried building the full scipy with 
icc, but chepes.c is giving me an error:

Lib/special/cephes/const.c(92): error: floating-point operation result is out 
of range
   double INFINITY = 1.0/0.0;  /* 99e999; */
Lib/special/cephes/const.c(97): error: floating-point operation result is out 
of range
   double NAN = 1.0/0.0 - 1.0/0.0;
compilation aborted for Lib/special/cephes/const.c (code 2)

Since I'm not terribly familiar with icc, I'll wait for help from Andrew 
locally tomorrow. It may well be a simple command-line switch issue or some 
other stupid error on my part (though the manpage doesn't give me any pointers 
yet).  Need to sleep now.

And thanks for doing the implementation work on ICCCompiler, I was honestly 
willing to give it a go :)
