Ha! This always happens. I ask some question on a forum/list and then 5
minutes later find some answer. Look at this:

This crashes with MCH3601
icc main.cpp -o main

This works fine, at least what I've explored so far
icc -o main main.cpp

It's just a change in the order of options.

In addition to moving to a new machine and OS, we're going to be using
iASPs on this box. A new-ish concept for me. 5799PTL is the installed
product. I'm guess our previous sysadmin installed it on there for me when
the machine was built.

Spencer, I'll check out your project. Thanks.

Not necessarily closing this out as there may be more developments. Thanks
for the responses so far!

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
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
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
