[Ardour-Dev] Some questions about compilers

I have some curiosities about compilers to build Ardour with.
Reply only if you have some time to spare, there is nothing critical here.

- I read on the mailing lists (dev and cvs) that Ardour3 has problems to be compiled with GCC 4.5. Do these issues affect the version 2, too? I am asking this because I successfully built Ardour2 (2.8.9) with GCC 4.5 on my Arch Linux netbook, but I wanted to make sure that I won't discover later some subtle bug or crashes due to the use of 4.5 (I use that pc for live performances, too, so stability is critical).

- Does Ardour (2 and 3) compile with the Intel compiler (v. 11) and, in the case, does this give a boost on performance (with Intel CPUs, specifically Atom)? Since I have ICC only on my netbook, that takes ages to build Ardour (over 1,5 hours), I prefer to ask before actually try to do it.
