That depends on what you mean by 'stand-alone'. The built-in Org mode
from 'emacs -Q' can export to at least html, latex, pdf and odt by
default, of which only latex and pdf require the installation of extra
external tools.

Thereʼs a texinfo backend as well that youʼd need to enable, which may
well require external tool support (Iʼve never used it).
