There are at least three R packages to do this, spatial, geoR and
sgeostat. Look at library(help=) for each.

Certainly.  It's just linear algebra which R does fairly well (and I've
written code to do so in S long ago, when it was too slow on a 12Mb 20MHz

surf.gls allows arbitrary stationary and isotropic processes, for example.
