A simple test program provided along with Intel MPI is used.
I failed to build freetype-2.9.1, harfbuzz-1.7.6 and libpng-1.6.34 using 'icc (ICC) 18.0.1 20171018'
The following is my building steps for your reference:
cd libpng-1.6.34 && ./autogen.sh && ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/ --enable-shared && make && make install
cd freetype-2.9.1 && ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/ --enable-shared --with-png=no --with-harfbuzz=no && make && make install
