One more random question that's not so related to mkl so much.. It looks like we want to add compiler flags (-g --dynamic -debug inline-debug-info) to allow profiling at NERSC. Is there already an option to perform a debug build via newinstall or lsstsw?
NERSC mentions the intel compiler often and seems to suggest we might see better performance - thus far I've stuck with gcc - but has anyone tried using an intel compiler with the stack? Can we? I see the libgcc module in Anaconda - does that tie us to the gnu compiler?
