If Intel compiler link with GPL incompatible libraries, you can not 
redistribute Octave, but you can still use.

GPL mandates code (both source and binary) redistribution - not code usage.

As I wrote several years ago, 'ffmpeg' 'configure' had a switch enabling 
LGPL-incompatible libraries ('ffmpeg' itself is LGPL). And there was a warning 
issued in this case that the binary could not be redistributed.
