  The Intel C++ compiler is just set of the binary tools (compiler,
linker, .... and some
processor optimized extension libraries (math library, integer and float
vector class library).
The package don't include the CRT library and uses the CRT from
installed MSVC.
I have the installed three versions of the MSVC: 7.0, 7.1 and 8.0. And I
can build
the some project using Intel C++ with any CRT which I have.

  I mean that some of the macros from _config-msvc.h is not
compiler-specific, but CRT specific.
If we want to separate the Intel and MSVC config files, we should
copy-paste that
macros into the _config_icc.h. Is that corresponds the goals?
