Unfortunately, Itanium is not a well tested platform, since not many
developers have access to one. From your build log, the problem is not
MKL, but the fortran compiler not being properly setup. But this is
hard to debug without being able to run the build by ourselves,
unfortunately.

>From the log, I would first look at the fcompiler customization in the
build_ext command. In the installed numpy, in
numpy/distutils/commands/build_ext, there is the following code in the
run method:

        if need_f77_compiler:
            ctype = self.fcompiler
            self._f77_compiler = new_fcompiler(compiler=self.fcompiler,
                                               verbose=self.verbose,
                                               dry_run=self.dry_run,
                                               force=self.force,
                                               requiref90=False,
                                               c_compiler=self.compiler)
            fcompiler = self._f77_compiler
            if fcompiler:
                ctype = fcompiler.compiler_type
                fcompiler.customize(self.distribution)
            if fcompiler and fcompiler.get_version():
                fcompiler.customize_cmd(self)
                fcompiler.show_customization()
            else:
                self.warn('f77_compiler=%s is not available.' %
                          (ctype))

Could you add a print fcompiler, fcompiler.get_version() just before
the "if fcompiler and fcompiler.get_version()" ? This should confirm
whether it fails where I think it fails (i.e. the get_version)

cheers,

David
