Which lines did you put into site.cfg?
library_dirs = /scr/python/lib/
include_dirs = /scr/python/include/
Note that you will also have to specify `include_dirs`,
otherwise it will find the libraries, but not the include
files and therefore tell you that there is no fftw at all.
(Note to developers: wouldn't it be nicer at this point
to tell the user that the libs were found, but
not the header files, which are needed for the install?)
