Damn - I never thought to fully confirm that.

So what I've found so far - there's a copy in the following directories:

File description:    Common
Product name:    Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility

The other option would be to manually disable compiling the package that 
triggers it.  Any tips on that? (Granted I rather get it to compile
