Unfortunately, at this stage, it does not say much about linking:
distutils look for files, and do not do any sanity check beyond that.

I think the problem is simply that intel support in numpy for the C
compiler is limited to unix. At least, a quick look at the sources did
not give much informations about windows support: --compiler=intel does
call for the unix version (icc, and this is called first as you can see
in your log). I am actually puzzled: where is the icl.exe coming from ?
grep icl gives nothing in numpy, and nothing in python - did you by any
chance build python itself with the Intel compiler ?
