Given that the 171 KB TCC.EXE binary consumes about 79 KB in the compressed ZIP archive, it should be possible to use PKLITE or a similar online compressor to get an executable file size of much less than 128 KB. However, using an executable compressor will require slightly more RAM when loading the file - this might be tough with only 15 KB left... You may need to try several different compressors, some give better compression ratios than PKLITE or are faster, but are less compatible or require newer CPUs, but some may have less overhead...
