Comment (by faltet):

 No, I'm not completely sure.  However, on my Core2 machine, the MKL
 automatically links against em64t libraries (I'm running 64-bit Linux) and
 this is why I think Core2 should fit there.  Furthermore, Xeon machines
 can also run 32-bit code, right?

 At any rate, IMHO this patch would rarely be needed because you almost
 always need to carefully instruct the libraries to link with in site.cfg.
 So, do whatever you find better.
