Dear Hui Cao,

here are some suggestions:

1) Do the previous versions compile ?
2) Does it work in serial ?
3) Does it work in parallel ?
4) Does it work with Atlas instead of MKL ?
5) Does it work with another software compiler ?

Often, it is too complicate for anyone to give advice on such
a generic question - we do not know which compilers you have installed,
which libraries, with processors, etc... And most of the problems
are obscure, complex to find out, and always dependent on an unusual
implementation of the above on the sepcific machine.

So, best luck...
