I think I did! it was done in 3 simple steps:

$make install

after installation of fftw.

I did this after installation by user had failed - there were messages: 
Permission denied
during compilation. But installation into user space after logging in as 
a root went without
errors. So I think it should be installed. Where a bin subdirectory 
should be?
