No - two issues:

   1) Inkscape is an application - not a C library.

   2) Inkscape is GPL - therefore any solution involving it would be 
unusable in commercial.

FWIW I don't believe there are any complete open-source SVG C/C++ 
library implementations which are not GPL - but would be happy to be 
proved wrong.

Obviously WebKit has an implementation, but it is part of WebKit and not 
exposed as an independent component as far as I'm aware.

Warmest Regards,
