Another option is, once the files are stripped down, pack them up in a squashfs, and loop-mount them in place when needed.

Figure out what packages you don't need, delete them and the .sh
package, and copy everything else into a different, non-tmpfs directory
in your home folder.

Thanks Alex.
So, IIUC, tmpfs allows to use more space than the space actually available. Smart.

However, I'm afraid that there's not much I can remove from the lilypond package.
I may remove usr/lib/python2.4, because lilypond keeps working. But all the python scripts (convert-ly, lilypond-book) won't work.

50 MB is really a ridiculous space for $HOME.
I think I'll bring some USB drives containing lilypond binaries, documentation and Frescobaldi 2 (python-poppler-qt4 included).

Fortunately, I can install the dependencies in the main system (/).

I can install lilypond using the --prefix option:
sh --prefix /media/usb

and then add the path to the binary in Frescobaldi options.
