It takes around 12 seconds for ICC to return from
command on my system. On the other hand gcc returns in 0.002s (times are measured using time command). This makes my makefile build process extremely slow (around 40 minutes for a release build). As i was reading here, I followed the step 7 from Kevin Davis's answer and tried strace icc -V command (log file attached). I was able to pin-point the delay to the two timeout events. Not being an expert on the subject, I am not able to understand what these timeouts mean. Any help will be appreciated.
My system setup is: Ubuntu 12.04, icc version 13.1.0 (gcc version 4.6.0 compatibility). I am using Ubuntu as a Virtual Machine.
