cpp in base?

quick question - should I be able to use /usr/bin/cpp -E without having
installed the compiler binary set? So far on this 5.1.2 host I've got
the base and etc sets installed and when trying to use cpp as a pre-processor
only, I get the following:

|deimos[~/tmp/cpp] 249v>: cpp -E ./blah
|cpp: error trying to exec 'cc1': execvp: No such file or directory

Is this intentional?  I'd prefer not to install the compiler set if I 
don't have to as this is a host with limited disk space.
