No, the GMX_BUILD_OWN_FFTW option will simply tell the build system to
download FFTW 3.3(.3?), build it, and link it statically against mdrun. I'm
just realizing that the naming of the option allows it to be confused with
GROMACS' built-in (=own) fftpack (which is typically at 2-3x+ slower).
Unfortunately, the install guide refers to the option as
-DGMX_BUILD_OWN_FFTW=ON which means that even Google can't find it.
