[ODE] ODE slow on itanium?

As an aside having bothered to go to all the trouble of getting  
everything to compile under Intel's compiler I downloaded the trial  
version for MacOSX. It's a big improvement there too - the run time  
for my simulation dropped from 1.8 seconds to 1.3 seconds which is a  
worthwhile improvement. I'd previously tried the Intel compiler under  
linux but only on AMD based systems where it really didn't seem to  
make much difference (maybe 5 to 10% quicker) but you can't turn the  
optimisations up to full on anything other than Intel chips so that's  
probably why.
