What scipy/numpy versions are you using? Here (debian sid 

In [10]: scipy.show_config()
     libraries = ['fftw3']
     library_dirs = ['/usr/lib']
     define_macros = [('SCIPY_FFTW3_H', None)]
     include_dirs = ['/usr/include']

In [11]: scipy.__version__
Out[11]: ''

In [12]: scipy.__numpy_version__
Out[12]: ''

In [7]: scipy.fftpack.test(10)
Ran 51 tests in 127.203s

May be these problems are not related to different architectures. So far 
only OSX users have reported problems with fftw3. Although there are also 
performance problems with fftw3 under Opteron, fftpack tests still pass ok
