I have compiled several times gromacs-3.3.3 with fftw-3.1.2 on different
machines and never had any problem related to fftw, but I'm really not a
gcc wizard. Same think with gmx-3.3.1 and gromacs-4

I have never noticed any slowdown with fftw-3.1.2 on any gromacs version

I have briefly compare gromacs-3.3.1 + fftw-2.1.5 (on cluster X) and
gromacs-3.3.3+fftw-3.1.2 (on cluster Y) and didn't notice any
significant difference, but as I said, it was a quick comparison.
Additionally, it is said on the website that Gromacs is compatible with
