Not that I'm an expert in that sort of black magic, but the next worked 
fine for me and numexpr:


# Example for using MKL 10.0
#library_dirs = /opt/intel/mkl/
#include_dirs =  /opt/intel/mkl/

# Example for the MKL included in Intel C 11.0 compiler
library_dirs = /opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/074/mkl/lib/em64t/
include_dirs =  /opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/074/mkl/include/

##the following set of libraries is suited for compilation
##with the GNU C compiler (gcc). Refer to the MKL documentation
##if you use other compilers (e.g., Intel C compiler)
mkl_libs = mkl_gf_lp64, mkl_gnu_thread, mkl_core
