Self-contained Build

Is it possible to use the Sandcastle tool set in a self-contained fashion? That is, have all the tooling checked into one's source tree and use the tools from one's build scripts, without any need to install packages on the build machine.

Last I tried, this didn't appear to be possible, but it would be good to get that validated.

Sandcastle and SHFB can be ran that way but you still need to ensure that the required help compilers are installed and that the DXROOT and SHFBROOT environment variables are pointed at the right place.  There is no getting around those two requirements.
