Intel Math Kernel Library (Intel MKL) is a highly optimized, extensively threaded, and thread-safe library of mathematical functions for engineering, scientific, and financial applications that require maximum performance. The Intel MKL 10.3 Update 4 packages are now ready for download. Intel MKL is available as a stand-alone product and as a part of the Intel Parallel Studio XE 2011, Intel C++ Studio XE 2011, Intel Composer XE 2011, Intel Fortran Composer XE 2011, Intel C++ Composer XE 2011, and Intel Cluster Studio 2011. Please visit the Intel Software Evaluation Center to evaluate this product.

The new Intel MKL 10.3 Update 4 release provides the following:
There have been a few changes in the directory structure (in 10.3) and as noted in the release notes you will need to use an update of 10.2 if you use Itanium.
So the answer depends on your architecture and which compiler you are using. In any case you will need to relink your application.
Intel Compilers (or now, Intel Composer XE 2011) include Intel MKL, but the version numbers don't correspond (take a look at this table). I was referring above to Intel MKL version numbers. Intel MKL 10.2 update 7 is the very latest version of Intel MKL that supports Itanium processorsand it can be found in Intel Compiler 11.1 update 8.
For the issue on OOC that you refer to, you will either need a workaround or a fixed version of 10.2.
