Answered in the context of, "What C++ dependencies does DragonFly have
and how hard would it be to remove them?"

devd(8), groff(1) and binutils gold, we have a C binutils as well
though so that is not a hard requirement. mdoc is already staged up to
replace groff, someone just needs to put in the labor to get it done.
devd is 1200-1300 lines of C++, only part of which is "classy", it
should be a straightforward port to C. If someone really wanted to rid
DragonFly of its C++ dependencies, it would be fairly easy to do so
given how things sit right now.
