Ok, well, the Intel compiler actually ends up emulating GCC and
supports most of its extensions; supposedly it can even be used to
compile the kernel sources, as per include/linux/compiler-intel.h. (I
don't know how recently this has been tested, though) So does
anybody compile userspace under anything other than GCC or Intel
compilers? Do any such compilers even exist?

Cheers,
