You can go standalone only with compiled functions that do not require 
the Mathematica evaluator.

See the section "External Calls" in the "Mathematica Compiler" tutorial 
(paste Compile/tutorial/Overview into the Documentation Center 
search/URL field) for complete information.

For small functions, you can eyeball the output from CompilePrint:

cf = Compile[x, x^2]

If the output doesn't mention MainEvaluate, you're clear to take it
