We already package Ardour in this way.

We've overcome all the obstacles with GTK's non-relocatable-ness on
Linux, bar 1, which was mentioned here recently (the way that gmodules
get loaded independent of all environment control. i still haven't
cooked up the proposed patch that would acceptably fix this).

There are some nasty parts. Full details can be found in the non-apple
version of fixup_bundle_environment() in

 A simple API to setup the environment so that the entire GTK stack
will look inside a bundle would be welcome.
