This is wrong. I've just successfully compiled and run it on a PPC G3.

There is no PPC specific code in the sources, so djbfft did compile and
run on PPC just by virtue of a C compiler.

"The djbfft installation procedure assumes that you have a UNIX system
with gcc."

That probably means that it won't build on Windows without cygwin or
maybe MinGW; but likely that's just an issue of the build process (which
is depending on make and sh), which isn't a big deal.

Possibly it doesn't run competitively on architectures he hasn't
optimized for. If you have valuable information about this, please
provide it.
