Yes, it's possible, although I don't have a list of files ready. I do
exactly that for a small project of mine, which is a .net 2.0 ClickOnce
application that includes a version of mono (1.9.something currently) as
zip file. It is 18 MB uncompressed, less than 7 MB as a zip file and works
fine for my (quite specific) purpose of recompiling some stuff on the
client machine.
Sorry that I cannot help you with specific details, but with a little
guesswork and some trial and error it's possible to do what you want ;)
