AMBER: Problem with installing Amber8: Where are the MK libraries?

I've been trying to install Amber8 on a fedora 2 system. However when I try to
confidure the system by typing:

../configure -p4 -static -nopar ifort

I get the following message:

AMBERHOME is set to /root/Hayden/AMBER8/amber8
Setting up Amber configuration file for architecture: ifort
Using parallel communications library: none
MKL_HOME is set to /opt/intel_fc_80:/opt/intel_fc_80
MKL libraries were not found !

My .bashrc file looks like this:
# .bashrc

# User specific aliases and functions

alias rm='rm -i'
alias cp='cp -i'
alias mv='mv -i'
alias ls='ls -F'

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
        . /etc/bashrc
export AMBERHOME=/root/Hayden/AMBER8/amber8
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/intel_fc_80/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBARY_PATH:/opt/intel_fc_80/lib
export MKL_HOME=/opt/intel_fc_80
export MKL_HOME=$MKL_HOME:/opt/intel_fc_80

Is it that my MKL library doesn;t exist?
That the system is looking for the library in the wrong place?
Something completely different?

we've installed a 32-bit compiler (l_fc_p_8.1018)

Any insight into this problem would be greatly appreciated.
