w3c-libwww-5.2.8-3.src.rpm needs C++ compiler

Will building the w3c-libwww-5.2.8-3.src.rpm require that I install
the C++ compiler of gcc, or can it be "tricked" into doing without it?

I have a SuSE linux 5.3 system (libc5 based).  

To avoid the work of creating my own RPM I thought I would give the
source RPM for RedHat 6.0
        http://www.w3.org/Library/Distribution/SRPMS/w3c-libwww-5.2.8-3.src.rpm
a shot.

However, it seems to be requiring the gcc C++ compiler.  I've only
installed the C compiler of gcc 2.7.2.1, because I don't need the C++
for this version.

I have egcs-1.1.2-pre2 installed in a different path, but I would like 
to use only what's installed in the system directories, using RPMs,
for building a libwww RPM.
