In this case, please point to your Blacs/Scalapack installation and the
link-line with the variables "SCALAPACK_LDFLAGS" and "SCALAPACK_FCFLAGS".
"SCALAPACK_LDFLAGS" should contain the correct link-line for your
Blacs/Scalapack installation and "SCALAPACK_FCFLAGS" the include path
and any other flags you need at compile time.
For example with Intel's MKL 11.2 library one might have to set
SCALAPACK_LDFLAGS="-L$MKLROOT/lib/intel64 -lmkl_scalapack_lp64 -lmkl_intel_lp64 \
-lmkl_sequential -lmkl_core -lmkl_blacs_intelmpi_lp64 \
-lpthread -lm -Wl,-rpath,$MKL_HOME/lib/intel64"
SCALAPACK_FCFLAGS="-L$MKLROOT/mkl/lib/intel64 -lmkl_scalapack_lp64 -lmkl_intel_lp64 \
-lmkl_sequential -lmkl_core -lmkl_blacs_intelmpi_lp64 -lpthread \
-lm -I$MKLROOT/include/intel64/lp64"
Note, that the actual MKL linkline depends on the installed MKL version.
If your libraries are in non-standard locations, you can think about
specifying a runtime library search path ("rpath") in the link-line,
otherwise it will be necessary to update the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment
