No, I don't think so. You should not compile your own python unless you
know what you're doing: by doing so, you mostly likely have to recompile
*every* C extension.

It is of course caused by compiling with ICC. Compiling numpy with the
non default compiler on your platform is a tricky business most of the
times, you should use gcc on Linux if possible and don't want to waste
time. It is possible to compile numpy with ICC, but you have to know
what you are doing - if you are not familiar with compiling complex
packages from sources, you should not do it.
