Hi Laurence,

I'm not familiar with Intel's compilers (even more, running them on  
Itaniums). I'm guessing that numpy.distutils isn't able to tell  
whether your compiler is intele or not. From numpy/distutils/fcompiler/ 
intel.py, the command run to find the version is

$ ifort -FI -V -c dummy.f -o dummy.o

where dummy.f is just a file with a dummy subroutine in it. Could you  
do this and give us the output?
