Since CFront was never public domain, I don't think a public domain
compiler could have used it.

None today, I'm pretty sure, since CFront itself hasn't been
maintained for years.

To be honest, it was a good deal better than its competitors
(Zortech, g++) back then.

Except those who don't: g++, Microsoft, Sun...:-). I'd be
pleased as punch if the "mainstream" compiler on any of my
platforms had an EDG front end, but none do. (Because we have
to link with third party libraries which are only provided for
the mainstream compiler, we're pretty much locked in.)
