Your best best, IMHO, is to take one of those C++ libraries and to write some
R glue code.  Or to higher someone who can do it for you.

There are numerous example packages on CRAN which do exactly that: provide R
access to and from external libraries, often written in C, C++ or Fortran.


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
