If what you need is real speed you should better try a 2 stages Caml/C
solution, like the FFTW (fastest fourier transformation in the west
which produces C code from a Caml function) or using CIL
(Infrastructure for C Program Analysis and Transformation).

It will be cleaner, easier to maintain, much more portable and ...
FASTER ! (you should read Matteo Frigo's papers on the subject)
