I'm not aware of any C++ libraries. There are a couple of plain C parsers, 
https://www.pakettiradio.net/libfap/ is a C port of our Ham::APRS::FAP 
parser written in Perl.  Dire Wolf (https://github.com/wb2osz/direwolf) is 
written in C and has a GPL'd APRS-IS client and parser; aprx 
(https://github.com/PhirePhly/aprx) has another.  But not as a library.
