I made that change as part of commit e5749978.  The change was part of
a feature enhancement (compiling with -fno-merge-constants).

Is this the only thing preventing compilation on the Intel compiler?

Typically a feature enhancement such as e5749978 would go into the
next release, and we're likely a month or so out from the next

As Peter mentioned in another email, it should be possible to checkout
a git version using the hash instead of a tag name in the interim (eg,
"git checkout 9f505f71").
