I don't know about any R implementations, but perhaps someone on the R-Sig-Geo has seen something.

Hopefully you noticed the CODE Gastner and Newman provide (through the site you mention) along with a short tutorial. The software is available as a zip file from the link on: http://www.santafe.edu/~mgastner/

That site also provides links to Gastner and Newman's PNAS paper: http://www.pnas.org/cgi/content/full/101/20/7499 or http://www.pnas.org/cgi/reprint/101/20/7499

and links to a Windows executable,
http://www.jatrigis.com/cartogram/cartogram.htm, and java implementations, http://people.cas.sc.edu/hardistf/cartograms/.

The MAPresso site may also be of interest: http://people.cas.sc.edu/hardistf/cartograms/
