Static library in XCode with intel compiler fails to build

I have a simple xcode project that I amtrying to compile with intel compiler 11.1/084
"include/sample.h"

#include

#include

voidcrump(void);

"src/sample.cpp"

#include"sample.h"

usingnamespacestd;

voidcrump(void)

{

cout<<"in crump now"<

}

In xcode, I set the proper search paths for the header files in the "search paths" sections. I noticed that I had to set the C++ compiler in two places one in the project settings and another in the Target-Rules settings (by adding a new rule to build C++ files with Intel Compiler 11.1).
I am able to build this as a static from command line by calls to icpc and ar ...but not within xcode. Can somebody please help?
I get the following message:

This is a bug. The compiler added the option -Wl,-no_compact_unwind by default to resolve the problem reported here:

Unfortunate, libtool does not support this option. I have reported a bug on this issue. ID DPD200151036 for your reference.

In the mean time, you mentioned that you were able build this as a static from command line by calls to icpc and ar. One work around you could try in Xcode is to add a new build phase to your target,

Select target -> Project -> New Build Phase -> New Run Script Build Phase -> enter script "ar command that you used from the command line".

Thanks a lot, esp. for the quickness of your response ... at least for this dummy program I got the static library built and linked against it .... hopefully I can do the same for the big project!

Another workaround that might be easier is to add the complete libtool command line with out the -no_compact_unwind option to the custom build phase. You can get the complete libtool command line by addingthe option -v to the command line options inXcode.

icpc -v -staticlib test1.cpp test2.cpp will give you something like this:

....

libtool \ (you need the libtool command from here).

-static \

-arch_only \

x86_64 \

-no_compact_unwind \ (Remove this when you add it to the custom build phase).
