In many cases, you don't want to use the system-supplied fftw libraries, for

[Aside to Amber developers: above is another reason to be wary of external
dependencies. Using the system libfftw3 may work on *your* system, and it
saves a minute or two in the build. But who knows what a user will have
in /usr/local/lib, or where it came from?]
