Just a note that patch this has to work for Python 2.4 as  Python 2.4 
lacks ctypes. This means that 'import ctypes' may or may not fail 
depending on whether or not ctypes package 
(http://python.net/crew/theller/ctypes/) has been installed.

Obviously the patch also has to work with different MKL versions but I 
don't use it.
