     Type:  defect           |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  normal           |   Milestone:         
Component:  numpy.distutils  |     Version:  none   
 Severity:  normal           |    Keywords:         
 There is a problem (I think with disutils) in finding the libraries for
 version 9.1.021 of the Intel MKL.  The installation looks for libraries
 mkl_lapack32 and mkl_lapack64, which do not exist.  I was able to get
 around it by creating symbolic links from these files to mkl_lapack.
 Following the wiki instructions on installation with ifort and mkl did not

 In addition, I found that it was necessary to add the SELinux context
 textrel_shlib_t to the shared libraries libguide.so, libirc.so, libmkl.so,
 libvml.so and libmkl_lapack.so, though I don't really know what this
 actually did.
