As far I know the runtime library does not exist yet. At least looking at the 
sources of hfst-optimized-lookup it seems that only a standalone binary is 
built, no library that could be dynamically linked against.

Although I must admit that I have never tried to build it.

Yes, I suppose it will solve the problem too if it supports everything that is 
needed, including flag diacritics.
