What PTF level of IBM i 7.3 are you running?  What CUMe and Group PTFs are installed? Any TRs?

Any time you get an MCHxxxx error from IBM supplied code or command, it usually means there is a "defect" and you need some PTF(s)...

Open a Support Incident (PMR) to report the problem to IBM. IBM support  should be able to help you determine what is wrong, and identify any  applicable PTFs if available. If none exist for this problem yet, you should request your PMR be accepted as an APAR  so that a "fix"  (PTFs) will eventually be forthcoming. (That's what  your company is paying for, with an IBM Software Maintenance Agreement (SWMA).)

Years ago I downloaded the unsupported package 5799-PTL because I was new
to the iSeries world and knew I needed some kind of make facility and other
means of compilation other than CRTCPPMOD & CRTPGM. I had to work out two
bugs that I remember in the icc code, then I was off and running. That was
on our Power7 V7R1 machine. Now we are working to transition to a Power8
w/ V7R3 and it has icc already installed, or so it seems. When I do the
following "type" command, I get the following:

$ type icc
icc is /QIBM/ProdData/DeveloperTools/qsh/bin/icc.

However, compiling anything gives me this:

QAPTL/ICC: Unexpected exception MCH3601

How can I dig into this a little more deeply and figure out what's going on?
