Could you register an issue ticket at the r-forge page for BH, please?  There
are other things missing too, of course, as we started pretty with the needs
of "just" bigmemory and RcppBDT.

With the R API being tied down more and more, I am unsure as whether we can
get to these.  

But that said, Rcpp makes it pretty easy to link to external libraries -- so
you could always try working directly with, say, libpcre.
