Not sure if it will help, as you will still need to figure out how to
get the FFTW libraries on there, and then gromacs would have had to be
(re)compiled so it knew where to locate them. Plus how to define whether
you wanted 32bit or 64bit and single vs. double precision. IMO there are
just way too many permutations to provide binaries for all of them, even
if it was statically linked to fftw.

Anyway, there are no binaries for any other platforms to download either
(so it's not like it's a windows-specific observation).
