The code miscalculated the number of operations, the most we get with 
strict aliasing and allowing fused-multiply-add is 4.62 GFLOPS:

heine:~/Downloads> gsc -cc-options "-fstrict-aliasing -O3 -save-temps" 
-exe fft
heine:~/Downloads> ./fft
<stuff removed>
n = 17; time = .0048208906249999905; GFLOPS = 4.622020853252617; error = 
1.9179232434271595e-8

and not allowing fused multiply add gives 4.18 GFLOPS:

heine:~/Downloads> gsc -cc-options "-fstrict-aliasing -O3 -save-temps 
-mno-fma" -exe fft
heine:~/Downloads> ./fft
<stuff removed>
n = 17; time = .00532633984375; GFLOPS = 4.183408804856173; error = 
1.895030528746498e-8

I'll look into adding something to the Gambit benchmark suite.
