I've managed to build NumPy 1.0.3 from source using the Intel icc
compiler and the Intel MKL, and now I'm trying for SciPy. Reading the
archives looking for help I found this:

Thanks very much, indeed, build_clib, build_ext, build works (in this order).

LAPACK and BLAS built successfully with the Intel compilers (details on
SciPy-dev) using modifications of Steve Baum's instructions at:


But every combination of options I can think of for the CL build of
SciPy (recent svn) fails with one of two error messages:

python setup.py  build_clib --compiler=intel --fcompiler=intel build_ext --compiler=intel --fcompiler=intel build >inst12
error: file 'dfftpack/*.f' does not exist

python setup.py  build_clib --compiler=intel --fcompiler=intel
error: file 'dfftpack/*.f' does not exist

python setup.py  build --compiler=intel --fcompiler=intel
error: '_fftpackmodule.c' missing

Any help appreciated, thanks,
