I wonder if the confusion stems from the requirement to "source" the
intel compiler setup files in (at least) two situations:
  1. when compiling the (MPI) application
  2. when running the (MPI) application

My solution to the second has been to create - as part of the build
process for my application - a "run" script for it. That script
sources the intel setup files, then runs the application.

Here is part of the script that runs my application:

# If it is defined, source the intel setup script.
if test "x/opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/074/bin/ intel64" != x ; then
    echo "setup the intel compiler with </opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/074/bin/ intel64>"
    . /opt/intel/Compiler/11.0/074/bin/ intel64
    if test -z $(echo ${LD_LIBRARY_PATH} | grep intel) ; then
        echo "Don't see intel in LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}>"
        echo "you may have trouble"
# run my program

I am running only on the 4 cores of one machine, so this solution may
not work for MPI applications that run on multiple machines.

Hope that helps,
