Okay, I will examine the previous compiling issues and itemize:
The action requests by developers
The results requested by developers
Be aware I tend to go overboard in providing information so that it will all be there without back and forth.

If it's of interest I can post the proposed script tasks here for review; and then implement the script to reproduce these transactions automatically. I found out long ago that the human ability to report on technical failures and evidence is very faulty; I am no exception. And mistakes on the front end of trouble isolation really waste a lot of effort.

I would gladly welcome such a script if you can make it. Bash would be fine, as there are already some scripts in the scripts/ directory using bash/sh

I suggest a script for validation testing that tries all optimization settings and evaluates them separately; and records the results. The reason is that optimization seems to vary with gcc/compiler version. It's my belief that program maintenance must be scripted in order to record past failings (which unfortunately reoccur) and provide feedback to maintainers. Otherwise there are endless back and forth's with people like myself reporting this and then that; and the other thing. If there is interest I can try to make up such a script/test for GSL in some form for linux. Suggestions for the script basis would be appreciated. I am inclined towards an automatizable interactive language or bash or AWK. Or perhaps there is a "unversal" software test program that allows control, repetition with variation; and most importantly good record keeping on both the input and output. Then the maintainers can just say: run this script and send the results back.

I have "icc version 14.0.3 (gcc version 4.8.1 compatibility)" here and
intel compiles the gsl package ok without any compiler warnings.

Thank you.

Does make check pass at -O2? 3? If not 2, 1?

I'm not concerned about compilation as much as the unit tests passing.
