Im trying to compile "zlib" with icc8 under linux.
When doing so, i get this:
xiar: executing 'ar'ar: illegal option -- z
I have updated to the latest GNU binutils.
I've noticed in another context that xiar adds a - to at lease some of the flags it passes to ar (and your message has a --).
If possible, remove the - from that argument you send to xiar (i.e. z instead of -z)
