No, because currently it wouldn't work.  tcc can't build any of the other 
three packages, and last I checked BusyBox hadn't got a usable shell or an 
implmentation of "make".

I was working on BusyBox before Bruce Perens chased me off that project, and 
now I'm working on reimplementing the entire thing from scratch (ToyBox), but 
it's not a high priority.

The closest I have is Firmware Linux (http://landley.net/code/firmware), which 
is a minimal environment made from seven packages:

That's the current minimum self-bootstrapping environment.
