Oops.  I intended to build non-FFTW packages, but I didn't explicitly 
make it happen.  I'm rolling new packages right now, which will exclude 
this dependency.  We also have a yum repository, that will provide all 
deps and also offer a meta-package that will install all of the stuff 
that we include with the Python Enthought Edition for Windows...but that 
will have to wait until I can fit it into my Copious Free Time(tm).

Thanks for the heads up.  Will be fixed by the end of today.
