Well, you can run org without byte-compiling its files.  It runs
slower, but I'm not sure how noticeably so on recent hardware.

This is a good question though, if you didn't have a build environment
available (say on an embedded linux distro), but you had a full emacs,
would you have everything you need to get a byte compiled org-mode?
the same in the git version?  Is it just a matter of running
byte-compile-file on everything in org's lisp directory, and getting
it all to the right spot.  (load path and info path).  Obviously we'll
leave aside the refcards in a limited environment, which take LaTeX to
