You might want to check your assumption that what you need is not available.
I believe that there is more not in CRAN than in CRAN. Henrik Bengtsson's
site lists 370 packages:
http://www.maths.lth.se/help/R/.R/doc/html/packages.html
You could try posting if googling and looking at the usual places,
cran.r-project.org, www.bioconductor.org and www.omegahat.org, does
not turn up what you are looking for.

Also, there is a document on the R site that
provides a translation between Octave and R that might give you some
insight into your questions:
http://cran.r-project.org/doc/contrib/R-and-octave-2.txt
