What did you mean by `Tukey-window and/or the Parzen-window'?  The modern
(post 1967) methods are discrete-frequency smoothings, whereas those
usually mean the old-fashioned technique of tapering the ACF. The two
approaches are equivalent but the older one is much less efficient.

Look harder at spec.pgram: it is completely general, and not confined to
Daniell smoothing.
