FFI bindings for FFTW

I've written a minimal wrapper for FFTW 

It provides two functions, (fftw-dft! rank sign in out) and (fftw-dft rank sign 


There is another set of bindings by Mikael Djurfeldt, here:

The differences are that guile-fftw only does 2D DFTs and is particular about 
array strides (based on my reading of the code), while (fftw-dft!) and 
(fftw-dft) do DFTs of any rank and place no restriction on strides. This comes 
through no effort on my part; it is a feature of FFTW's. Also this module uses 
the FFI, while guile-fftw uses a C extension.


This wrapper being minimal, it doesn't support computing & reusing plans, or 
split r/i transforms, or anything other than straight complex DFTs.

There is a crude test suite. It uses SRFI-64 which is also included (since it 
isn't yet in my installation of Guile).

This is my first time using the FFI. There are some portability issues such as 
the lack of library path setting or the types (e.g. int -> int32) being 
hardcoded. Any solution to these that's simpler than autoconf?

Any other comment or advice is welcome.
