Trying to build my binary by including the intel MKL libraries statically (on OS X).
I have explored the following options:
 using -lmkl_intel_ilp64, etc at the link stage but this dynamically links the libraries despite the .dylib's and .a's existing under /opt/intel/composer_xe_2013.0.088/mkl/lib. The top rated answer on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/844819/how-to-static-link-on-os-x shows that in cases where the .dylib and .a appear in the same directory, the .dylib (shared linking) is used.
 Manually adding the full paths to the MKL libraries to the link line. I would not have to rely on fixed paths as I'm developing a cross platform application.
I would like to use option  as its environment agnostic, but not have to physically remove/relocate the .dylib's so that the linker will be forced to use the static version.
