FFTPACK has initialization functions and is public domain. If that 
doesn't meet your need the FFTW folks maintain an quite extensive list 
of FFT implementations, http://www.fftw.org/benchfft/ffts.html and 
http://www.fftw.org/benchfft/ffts.html.  One of those may be what you 
are looking for.  Also, FFTW can be licensed for commercial use for a 
fee, http://web.mit.edu/tlo/www/industry/fftw-1.html.
