exporting a list of functions for use in a C function

I've composed a large list of functions in Mathematica that I'd like to 
have a c function evaluate.  To my knowledge c and C++ reject the 
convention x^2 and prefer either x*x or pow(x,2).  The functions are 
integer powers of a single variable.  I'm using the command,

Export["function_list.txt", Table[gflist[p], {p, 2, 5}], "CSV"]

where "gflist[n]" generates the said set of functions for the case "n". 
  The output file then looks like:

[winesap:~] nmoore% cat function_list.txt
1/(8*l^3*Pi),-(-3 + d)/(16*d*l^3*Pi)
(8 - 3*d)/(64*l^3*Pi),(-4 + d)^2/(64*d*l^3*Pi)
-(-5 + d^2)/(64*l^3*Pi),(-5 + 30*d - 15*d^2 + 
2*d^3)/(192*d*l^3*Pi),-(-5 + d)^3/(384*d*l^3*Pi)

I don't mind pasting in the "case" statement required by c, but I don't 
have the free two days required to re-express all the carats (^).  How 
can I have Mathematica express x^15 as x*x*x*x*x*x*x*x*x*x*x*x*x*x*x 
(the highest power of the polynomial is "n", I'd like to export the set 
of functions n=2 to n=30 or so - far too much typing for me)
