Then your problem would not be solved if Matlab compiled everything
into one executable. Your executable would simply be 76 Mb larger
than it currently is (150 Mb for 7.4 I read.)

Mathworks isn't simply throwing junk into MCRInstaller.exe :
that's where the code is to actually *do* everything built-in.
You need that code to run -- whether the code all lives in one
file (your executable) or lives in two files (the part that is just your
program plus the runtime.)
