Do we really need a C++ compiler to use Sage++ ?



Hi, I have a general question:

    Do we really need a C++ compiler to use Sage++ ?

It seems the answer is NO to me.
Rationale: 
    Sage++ is a library completely written in C (this can be seen by the
process of installing Sage++ -- only C compiler is needed). Thus, if a source 
code transformation program is written in C and calls Sage++ library, only C
compiler is needed, though the way that Sage library is organized is
class-hierarchy-like.

I have modified the Makefiles of your demo programs so that they only invoke
C compiler. The result looks OK. Am I generally correct ? 
  If my observation is right, it would save us some effort in
getting a C++ compiler for our Alpha.
