No, we never use the FFTW thread interface. One problem is that those  
routines have to start a new thread, and that overhead is too large  
for the small system sizes we normally have.

That's not to say we won't use it in the future, though, and it's  
generally useful, so if it works there's no real reason not to enable  
it when building FFTW.
