I had a look at PACMAN a year ago, it is not working with the current olsrd 
release, also it only works on linux. But the ideas of pacman as described in 
the paper, are quite good, if I remember right. So if were you, i would read 
that paper and reimplement these ideas all from scratch in a olsrd plugin. 
The algos in the paper are enough to get it working, afaikr. 

Please also note, that nobody uses the original olsr-rfc-protocol, but rather 
the enhancements like etx. I think in the freifunk firmware, which most 
meshes use, also the MPRs are switched off, i.e. every node behaves linke an 
MPR. So the hierarchie is flat. This is because, the MPR idea did not work 

Good luck on implementing. Rather get started, there are already so many 
papers on meshes, but code is rare ;-)

All the best,
