CGAL is written in C++ and makes heavy use of templates
to let user code parametrize efficiently the data structures.
I'm not sure it would be a good pick to begin with if you not
a lot of time.

On the other hand, if you're happy with a few small choices
of parametrization, you can do that in C++, then export some
C functions then bind against that. It's overall quite straightforward.
