I don't see why anyone would want to compile the base with icc,
even if it's the latest version but you can try lang/icc11 if you
can still find distro files. It's free for non-commercial use.

I don't think I tried compiling the base with lang/icc11 but I
could compile and run many packages (but few were broken).
