This means that code using the FFTW library via FFTW bindings is subject to FFTW's licensing terms.

Code using alternative implementations of the FFTW API, such as MKL's FFTW3 interface (https://software.intel.com/en-us/mkl-developer-reference-c-fftw3-interface-to-intel-math-kernel-library) are instead subject to the alternative's license.

On others plaforms, if FFTW library is available, and user chooses to use it, distribution falls under the terms of the GPL.
