On the computers of Zahra Sharbaf and Hamed Altafi, we noticed that
SExtractor's build was complaining about not having a single-precision FFTW
library! This was confusing because it was being installed with no problem on
other systems so far.

After checking on my own computer (with `ldd .local/bin/sex'), I noticed that
it was actually building with the single precision FFTW library (libfftw3f) of
my host system (in `/usr/lib'), not the pipeline's build.

After inspecting ArchLinux's build of FFTW
I noticed that they are using the `--enable-float' configure option, not
`--enable-single' that we are using. In the output of `./configure --help', it
says these two are the same, so we were using the latter. However, after using
the former, we now have `libfftw3f' in the pipeline and so SExtractor links
with it. 

I am now busy finalizing the fix now.
