Yes. See the mvtnorm package on CRAN. It implements Genz's algorithm, the fastest method in town. (I have a version I converted to S-PLUS as well, if you, or anyone, might need it.)

Dear R-community,

not to re-invent the wheel I wonder if someone of you has ever written a function to compute the GHK smooth recursive simulator to estimate multivariate normal probabilities. See for instance page 194 of

  author = {William H. Greene},
  year = 1997,
  title = {Econometric Analysis},
  edition = {3rd},
  publisher = {Prentice-Hall},
  address = {New Jersey 07458}

Thank you.
