Ben Brown has kindly let me try ifort 14 on his mac (I can't do it on mine because my OSX is too old).

The download/install seems to have worked, but now I'm getting problems using it with mesa.
It compiles mesa/const, but the test fails with this message:

dyld: Library not loaded: libiomp5.dylib
  Referenced from: /Users/paxton/mesa_intel/const/test/./tester
  Reason: image not found
./rn: line 1: 59526 Trace/BPT trap: 5       ./tester

When I saw that, I thought I had simply forgotten to run the intel login script.
So I did added these lines to my .bash_profile

export IFORTVARS='/opt/intel/composerxe/bin'
source $IFORTVARS/compilervars.csh intel64

But running that script gives this error:

brown:~ paxton$ source $IFORTVARS/compilervars.csh intel64
-bash: /opt/intel/composerxe/bin/compilervars.csh: line 39: syntax error: unexpected end of file

Next, I decided to check the intel tech support website.   After changing my password for them, I discovered something interesting.   Turns out they had just recently updated the last request I had submitted to them.  The request had been opened on 10/31/2006 and had been updated on 08/30/2013 to the new status of "Escalated to Engineering".  Good for intel --- only took them about 7 years for an issue to get passed from tech support to engineering.  Perhaps it will be resolved by engineering in time for your grandchildren to use.   But that's a digression .... back to the topic of ifort 14.

If anyone has managed to get ifort 14 to work on a mac, I'd like some help!
