No, I use Intel's MKL with numpy/scipy on Linux and do not use intels
C compiler. In fact I couldn't get it to work with Intel's compiler.
You may need the fortran compiler though - at least that is what works
with me.

I find that MKL is the fastest I've seen for ffts. Not sure about how
it squares up for Lapack type stuff though.
