By link, you mean rebuilding numpy and scipy with MKL, right ? The 
configuration file should certainly be named site.cfg, otherwise, it 
won't be taken into account.

What does the following return : python setup.py config ?

Note that for MKL 10, you will have to tell numpy to change the name for 
MKL as well (with lapack_libs something, it is mentioned in the 
site.cfg.example). I don't know why Intel thinks it is a good idea to 
change the library name every release, it is extremely annoying,
