I'm trying do get x86_64 version of MySQL Server compiled with ICC, but after unpacking it looks like there is wrong version packaged:

I'm fetching binary from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.0.html page, from sections:

Linux (non RPM, Intel C/C++ compiled, glibc-2.3) downloads
Linux (AMD64 / Intel EM64T)

How to repeat:
# wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-5.0/mysql-standard-5.0.24a-linux-x86_64-icc-glibc...

# tar xzf mysql-standard-5.0.24a-linux-x86_64-icc-glibc23.tar.gz
# file mysql-standard-5.0.24a-linux-x86_64-icc-glibc23/bin/{mysql,mysqld}

mysql-standard-5.0.24a-linux-x86_64-icc-glibc23/bin/mysql:  ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, not stripped

Thank you for a bug report. Verified just as described.

It seems we accessed the wrong variant of the Intel compiler, the one producing 32 bit binaries only.

I changed our environment settings on the machine and tried with a tiny test program, "file" reported it as "ELF 64-bit LSB executable, AMD x86-64, ..."

I now do a test build of a complete package to verify these settings pass through the whole build tool chain, but I am quite optimistic.

Test build succeeded, files are now described as
  ELF 64-bit LSB executable, AMD x86-64, ...

This will take effect with the next build on/for this platform 
(5.0.25, 4.1.22, 5.1.12-beta).

I have not checked whether all or just some old versions are affected.

The fix is in a local configuration file only, no push to sources or tools tree.

I doubt this needs to be documented, but set the status to "play it safe".

Noted in 4.1.22, 5.0.25, 5.1.12 changelogs.

Some x86_64 packages mistakenly contained 32-bit servers.

Revision to changelog entry:

Some Linux-x86_64-icc packages (of previous releases) mistakenly
contained 32-bit binaries. Only ICC builds are affected, not gcc
builds. Solaris and FreeBSD x86_64 builds are not affected.
