ninja + GMX_BUILD_OWN_FFTW doesn't work
on WSL with ninja 1.7.2 and cmake 3.5.2. Shouldn't be because of WSL (works fine with make). Given that this is a user feature and they are unlikely t use ninja probably sufficient to print error with ninja.

Just checked on Linux. cmake 3.6.3, ninja 1.7.2. Same problem:
ninja: error: 'src/contrib/fftw/fftwBuild-prefix/lib/libfftw3f.a', needed by 'lib/libgromacs.so.3.0.0', missing and no known rule to make it
Confirmed on ubuntu 17.10 (cmake 3.9.1, ninja 1.7.2). Happy to just give an error that it won't work, given that few people will use ninja and use the download
