I have been authoring a very small R package on CRAN, named 
"normix" which implements an S3 class "norMix" has plot and
print methods;  further, E[X] and Var[X] methods, random number
generation ("r") and density evaluation.
It also provides the 16 "Marron-Wand densities" (known in the (1d)
density estimation business).
Erik Jørgensen has provided "p" and "q" functions -- such that
there's now the full range of "dpqr" functionality.

I have recently *renamed* the package to 'nor1mix' (now on CRAN
where 'normix' has gone). 

Note that *estimation* (i.e. fitting normal mixtures to data) is 
not part of this package, but rather in (the more general framework of)
the package 'mclust'.
