C yes. C shares objects are dynamically loadable by Parrot.
C++? Not directly, you'll need to wrap any C++ APIs in "extern C" stubs
to get at them from Parrot and make sure you stuff any object pointers into
a PMC. It has been done, an example is the C++ Qt Toolkit.
I've only been reading the list for a short time (1 - 1 1/2 months). I
was reading some of the past articles, but there's just so many of
them that I figure I might as well just ask the question directly.
Is there now, or will there be in the future, any way to call C/C++
library routines from within Parrot? For example, a mysql, pcre or
libcurl library. Either static or dynamic.
I haven't actually program using either PASM or PIR(?) yet, since I'm
still working on the details of my compiler, such as the grammar, etc;
but I'm curious if this feature is available as this is something I
have to take into consideration right now.

The actual NCI stuff (for SDL bindings, at least) is in:
