 I know nothing about embedded platforms but I do know this.

I run a 64 bit Mono run time out of my OS X app bundle.
The omits all build tool chain stuff and consists of libmono, mscorlib 4 + 4.5, some configs and the 14 Mono assemblies required by my managed code at runtime.
I use the Mono assemblies as is i.e: I don’t tinker with the assemblies to reduce code size.

This comes in at 17MB for my usage case minimal Mono runtime environment.
My actual application managed code is then additional to this.
