Actually, I doubt this is a property of code generated by icc.  It is
more likely that they use (pieces of) assembler code which is not
PIC-safe.  There are plenty of descriptions on how to fix this around.
IMO we should not endorse those encodings until they fix these issues
since they open up a computer to attacks.
