It has already being answered but I will try to make it more clear.

The answer to this is a big yes.

There is a big confusion between Free Software (Free of speech) and
Free Beer. Nothing on GPL says you cannot sell GPL software.

What you cannot do in anyway is to hide the source code of the GPL software.

If your Engine isnĀ“t GPL then you must call the compiler as a external
software. This is because you cannot statically link GPL code into
proprietary software.

Also, You cannot modify the source code of the compiler and then
release it on any other licence other then GPL.
