This is Intel's own version of gcc for the P5. I don't think any of the
changes have been merged into the FSF/cygnus tree. This might be your only
choice with respect to gcc. It is reported to generate code about 20%
faster on P5 processors than standard gcc. According to the docs, this is
Intel's only experiment with gcc for the P5 and they have ceased further
work on this compiler.
