Well, that's encouraging; at least there's SOME way to do it. Cheers  
to Enthought, and of course to Mr. Cournapeau. :) Does it require  
static linking, or is there a possibility (down the road, of course)  
that binaries can be built that dynamically link against a (separately  
installed) MKL?

Also, any chance you have the build instructions written down  
somewhere?  This is what we have for the Windows build instructions on  
the new website:


I'm sure it is far from complete, and mentions nothing about 64-bit.
