I think that is not GPL-2 compatible. If I'm right, they could still be
included in an R package if a more permissive license is used on the
whole package. I don't know if CRAN will allow you to put one license
on some parts of the code, and another on those files.

I don't know AS 133, but R does have other optimizers, and you may be
able to use them instead.
