urgent help in portable applications

Hello
Im stuck with a project on converting existing applications in to their portable versions, What i mean is that i want an application to run on a Linux OS without the need of actually installing the application on that machine. My preffered OS is fedora as it is used on most machines in my college. any methods an links any sort of help will be appriciated. Also this has to be done by directly using available software on the net, Basically all the stuff has to be done by me without using softwares in which my contribution will be null, gcc scripts, unix scripts anything will b helpful.
cheers
P.S. This is a project for my course Operating systems.

NAME
ppmtotga - convert portable pixmap into a TrueVision Targa file SYNOPSIS
ppmtotga [-mono|-cmap|-rgb] [-norle] [ppmfile] DESCRIPTION
Reads a portable pixmap as input. Produces a TrueVision Targa file as output. OPTIONS
-mono Forces Targa file to be of type 8 bit monochrome. Input must be a portable bitmap or a portable graymap. -cmap Forces Targa file to be of type 24 bit colormapped. Input must be a portable bitmap, a portable graymap or a portable pixmap con- taining no more than 256 distinct colors. -rgb Forces Targa file to be of type 24 bit unmapped color. -norle Disables run-length encoding, in case you have a Targa reader which can't read run-length encoded files. All flags can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix. If no file type is specified the most highly constained compatible type is used, where monochrome is more constained than colormapped which is in turn more constained than unmapped. BUGS
Does not support all possible Targa file types. Should really be in PNM, not PPM. SEE ALSO
