If this is irrevocably so, my project to wrap Open Inventor and IRIS ViewKit, and develop an extensible Inventor editor has just been killed. These are IRIX MIPSpro C++ libraries that cannot be linked with g++ object code.

You can develop GNU Smalltalk modules with other compilers. It's just the VM that needs GCC, and it's pure C (not C++).

Was it really necessary?

Yes, because the new virtual machine's code is too complex to not be automatically generated, and the code generator only supports GCC. I can help you fix it if you really need it, but I think this is not a problem.
