There's a ticket on Tor's Trac to do something similar:

This is a requirement also to automate APAF build dependency setup, that
currently have to follow different procedures:


However i agree that it maybe also valuable to have a release by Tor
Project of a pure naked Tor binary, statically compiled for all platform
(Windows, Linux, OSX), that's valuable for third party integration,
always available in the same path as a "-latests" version.

Regarding the strict requirement to keep TorHS key on filesystem and
consequent inability to protect the private key, please have a look at
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/5976 .

You may find interesting for your development of new TorChat .

You know well which are the difficulties in making a third party
software incorporating Tor.

So i expect that a certain part of your effort could be on working on
Tor's tickets and codes to make it easier also for others to make Tor's
based applications :-))
