If you're not a programmer you're going to have a hard time making
Radiant comply with having to have packages externally. Radiant
requires the libraries it uses to perform functions, e.g. the image
libraries to load textures. Removing the code would mean Radiant
couldn't show textures at all.
What you would have to do is basically leave the code as-is, change
the compiling script to not statically-link the libraries, then write
some code to load the libraries when it loads. I haven't looked at the
code base in ages and I haven't used dynamically loaded libraries yet
in any of my own code so I don't know the specifics on making that
