This seems unique to openSuSE (maybe other distros). It seems to be created
by the fftw3 configure(?) What is in $AMBERHOME/lib64?

This lib vs lib64 stuff is a real pain. It seems like the simplest solution
is just to have the configure2 script create a soft-link pointer that makes
$AMBERHOME/lib64 point to $AMBERHOME/lib. Then things put into the first will
be visible in the second.

Best guess is that we have a newer version of fftw (3.3 rather than 3.2.x, I
think). Since we'd rather not fool with the internals of fftw, can you see
if the soft-link idea suggested above will work?
