Ah, got icc-8.1 to cooperate, dual 2.2 Ghz opteron+pc3200+2.4 kernel,
915.5MB array:

The strange thing is they are 32 bit binaries, despite being built
on a 64 bit os on a 64 bit hardware.

I played around with various mentioned optimizations (including -xW)
on the manpage, I never managed a 64 bit binary with icc-8.1 though.
The man page has numerous i32em and em64t references.
