[gmx-users] Windows installation

I'm trying to install Gromacs 4.0.5 on Windows Vista. I've successfully 
run the install/make for fftw 3.2.2, but when I run configure for 
gromacs I get this error message:

"configure: error: Cannot find fftw3f library"

I notice that the error message has fftw3f with an f on the end, but 
when I look in the fftw installation directory, the library files for 
fftw are named fftw3, with no f. I'm not sure if I should try to change 
the gromacs configure script or if fftw didn't build correctly. I tried 
building fftw by specifying an install directory with --prefix, and also 
tried it by letting it go to the default directory, with the same error 
message. Does anyone have any experience with this?
