Inspecting config.log to see the actual compiler error message would be 
enlightening. The most likely issue is that the libraries added by 
configure --with-fft=mkl aren't right on OS X. Start at the end and 
search backwards for "error" and look around there. Consult the Intel 
docs to see what command lines you need to link correctly.
