I don't think lib/intel64 implies Itanium. Indeed, running 'file' on it yields

libiomp5.so: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

I found this very helpful blog post: http://marklodato.github.com/2009/08/30/numpy-scipy-and-intel.html which seems to get NumPy built for me on the cluster. The key seemed to be changing the 'icc' executable and also explicitly selecting the mkl_mc (or in my case mc3) library to link.
