Hello Tony,

I am not aware of an out-of-the-box solution to your problem. However, in terms of macroeconometric simultaneous equation models, I have used the FP-program (see: Prof. Fair is so kind to provide the binaries and sources from his web-site. You could then cast the FRB-model in the FP-scripting language and access/run this file from R. At least this worked for me. Not very pleasing, but an option would be to port the FORTRAN code to an R package.

Hope this is a first helpful pointer for you.
