Intel C++ compiler and Xcode

I've just installed the Intel Parallel Studio but it won't let me compile anything because I don't have Xcode installed.  Can somebody shed any light on this?  Why is this so?  If I am required to have Xcode what is the sense in having Intel's compiler when I can just use the bloated Xcode?  Please help.

Yes, I am aware of the requirements.  My question is why?

Why does Intel C++ compiler depend on Xcode?  I would have thought that a compiler coming from the manufacturer of the die itself would be above and beyond this restriction.  Can anyone shed any light on this?

Intel compiler has dependency on system header files and C++ standard libraries.

I don't understand.  Isn't it the function of a compiler to provide its own C++ libraries.  If you are referring to system libraries, aren't those part of OS X, not Xcode.  More so, as far as header files,  these are just text files with declarations of standard and system libraries.  What gives?
