Hi Pearu,

thanks a lot for looking into this!!

I got some further info on  this:

The lapack stuff is provided in
  libmkl_lapack64.so  and  libmkl.so
which are in /opt/intel/mkl72/lib/64
To link correctly, they need
  libifcore.so   libguide.so
which are in /opt/intel/fc_90/lib/
which is in /usr/lib/

We tried the following, but without success

library_dirs = /opt/intel/mkl72/lib/64:/opt/intel/fc_90/lib/
include_dirs = /opt/intel/mkl72/include/
atlas_libs = mkl_lapack64,mkl,ifcore

So I think the problem boils down to the question on how
one has to specify additional libraries and their paths
which are needed to link (for example) lapack/atlas.

Is there already a way to do this?

Many thanks, Arnd
