[Rd] extending package with function calling an Objective Caml program

we are trying to extend the R package multcompView in agreement with the author Hans-Peter Piepho. The function multcompLetters implements so far a heuristic. We would like to add a function that implements an exact algorithm and returns a provable optimum result. This algorithm has been implemented in Objective Caml and we would like to reuse this code. We wrote an R function that accepts the same input as the original function and provides the same result format. But this function calls the Obejctive Caml executable. This means that if the package is extended with this function the Objective Caml code has to be included as well and one needs to assure that it is compiled the right way if the package is loaded.

Unfortunately are we not that familiar with R and could not find corresponding information in the documentation. Does somebody know if something as described above is possible? And where information could be found about how to do it?
