I use ffi and libcerf (thank you Luigi!)
For example (lots of other functions are available):


ffi = require("ffi")
double j0(double x);
double j1(double x);
double jn(double x);

cerf = ffi.load(ffi.os == "OSX" and "/opt/local/lib/libcerf.dylib" or "cerf")


\startMPdefinitions {doublefun}

  vardef jzero primary x = scantokens(lua("mp.quoted( ffi.C.j0(" & decimal x & "))")) enddef ;
  vardef jone  primary x = scantokens(lua("mp.quoted( ffi.C.j1(" & decimal x & "))")) enddef ;
  vardef jn    primary x = scantokens(lua("mp.quoted( ffi.C.jn(" & decimal x & "))")) enddef ;
