Let's say Ray's company buys one copy of Intel MKL. This gives them
the Intel MKL DLL and link libraries (.libs).

Now they compile NumPy and link it against Intel MKL. They can then
(as I understand the license agreement, IANAL, etc.) distribute this
binary and the Intel MKL DLLs.

They may *not* distribute the link libraries. This means that there is
no easy way for anyone else to build a new executable that is linked
against MKL.

Cheers,
