I can get it working now with either the [mkl] section like your config or
the following config:

include_dirs = /opt/intel/mkl/
library_dirs = /opt/intel/mkl/

libraries = mkl_gf_lp64, mkl_gnu_thread, mkl_core, iomp5

libraries = mkl_lapack, mkl_gf_lp64, mkl_gnu_thread, mkl_core, iomp5

It's just confusing I guess because if I change blas and lapack to blas_opt
and lapack_opt, I cannot get it to work.  The only reason I even care is
that site.cfg.example leads me to believe that the *_opt sections are the
way you're supposed to add them.
