Seems like it couldn't hurt to archive the binary and .fmt file too.
Although admittedly computer architectures and/or os's might have
changed so much that it won't run.

Anyway, as for your real question, take a look at
http://www.ctan.org/pkg/bundledoc/ (by Scott Pakin).  I think that does
exactly the job you want.

If you want to write stuff yourself, I would advise doing the latex run
with strace (or truss or whatever it is on your system that traces
system calls) and grabbing all opened files.

Good luck finishing your thesis :).
