I cannot reproduce this error.
A patch was released yesterday (python-scipy-0.7.0svn-1)
Upgrade your system and then try to find out if this problem persists.

I can't upgrade my home system, because too many python libraries for python still not rebuilded for x86_64. But ldd output confirms this bug :)

% ldd /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/scipy/fftpack/ => (0x00007fff8cdfe000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f0884741000) => not found => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f0884466000) => /lib/ (0x00007f08841e2000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f0883fcb000) => /lib/ (0x00007f0883c77000)
/lib/ (0x00007f0884c2f000)

Also, i686 version of this library don't linked with fftw.

I've upgraded to scipy 0.7 and looks like fftw no more needed. I think this ticket can be closed.
