The message says that the compiler used to compile openmp is gfortran: if  
you want to compile the parallel versione of QE you must use the same. If  
you want to compile QE in parallel with ifort you have only one possible  
solution: recompile openmp with ifort and reinstall it.

If I remember correctly, this is done by running the openmp configure like  
./configure CC=icc CXX=icpc F77=ifort FC=ifort

This is fine: mkl libraries are normally way faster than the included  
plain BLAS/LAPACK libraries.

If possible, I would suggest you contact directly some experience person  
at your institution to help you with the compilation.

Finally please provide your affiliation (institution/function) when
