https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7662/can-i-compile-sage-with-the-intels-compilers/?answer=11620#post-id-11620GAP, a Sage component, won't correctly build on ia64 using icc-10. Something goes wrong with the garbage collection.
(OK, ia64 is weird, though)Sat, 04 Sep 2010 12:20:10 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7662/can-i-compile-sage-with-the-intels-compilers/?answer=11620#post-id-11620Comment by ngativ for <p>GAP, a Sage component, won't correctly build on ia64 using icc-10.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7662/can-i-compile-sage-with-the-intels-compilers/?comment=22702#post-id-22702well, doing export CC=icc;export CXX=icpc; sage -f python
seems to work. at least, sage loads fasterMon, 06 Sep 2010 12:01:25 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7662/can-i-compile-sage-with-the-intels-compilers/?comment=22702#post-id-22702Answer by William Stein for <p>or at least the sage's python? </p>
https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7662/can-i-compile-sage-with-the-intels-compilers/?answer=11606#post-id-11606Nobody has ever built Sage with anything but GCC, though many people have tried.
It's conceivable that maybe the C code generated by Cython in the Sage library could be built with a different C compiler. However, since you'll be linking it with a bunch of code built using GCC, you'll be asking for trouble. I can't imagine that it would "just work". It couldn't hurt too much for you to try though.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7662/can-i-compile-sage-with-the-intels-compilers/?answer=11609#post-id-11609I think David Kirkby has explored building Sage with the Sun Studio compiler. You can perhaps find out more by inquiring on [sage-solaris][1] or [sage-devel][2].
