I have now searched through the archives and am enlightened. The primary
reason cited by developers for using C is portability.

I don't know what platforms people are running freeciv on these days, but if
switching to C++ would mean that some of these platforms would no longer be
able to compile freeciv, then that is a good enough reason to stick with C.
