No stupid question. Stupid answer may follow, though...

Ok, you are building on windows, with a custom python, on windows 64
bits, with MKL... That's a lot at the same time. I would first try
building numpy without the MKL with VS 2008, because this is already a
challenge by itself. Did you you try it ? Did it work ? Did the tests
pass ? Are you trying to build a 32 bits numpy (as suggested by the MKL
in x86 dir), or a 64 bits numpy ?
