Agreed. It might be worth then pointing people to an rpm of the static libs,
making one of the shared libs with the extra symlinks, or simply telling
people to build the libs themselves as static from the fftw site.

I guess I just don't really understand at all how ld does name resolution,
what it does with suffixes and numbers, etc. And the man pages aren't very
informative either.
