Of course it can be done!

I have fond memories of TP 3.x and PolyPascal 3.x (basically the same
compiler with a different user interface).  They had the compiler,
run-time library, editor + user interface in a 30-odd KB file.

Do you need the inline assembler?

You could try to put in some #ifdef's to conditionally compile the
assembler code and perhaps also the linker code (even though it isn't all
that big) so you end up with a couple of binaries:
 1) a linker for stand-alone .s files
 2) a combined C compiler and preprocessor
 3) a linker
