fftw is a library to do FFTs (fast Fourier transform). It's excellent, but probably not necessary unless you have lots of long series and you use FFT's repeatedly (say in an iterative fitting procedure). R's fft() is essentially instantaneous for most one-shot applications.

Maybe you need a more specialized tool, such as FFTW? I found it by searching on "fourier" at Just an idea...
