I remember reading about something like this before but don't remember where or when.
Basically I was thinking about people that don't have the RTP and/or didn't want to bother downloading it, so I figured it's easier to just deliver the game with those files as well.
But then chances are, if it's a small game, 80% of the stuff won't be used.. Actually I guess even in large games, most of the resources may not be used.
What kind tools are there for this?

Yeyinde's Data Checker
. It will indicate you which resources are used and which aren't, so you can clean up.

Does it compile a nice list of files so I can just pass it to another script that will walk through my folders and do the clean-up for me?

No, it indicates you in a message box the potentially unused files (by unused, I mean not used on the editor - files used in scripts can be flagged as unused too sadly) and you have to go through the trouble to delete them yourself.
Yeah, you'll have a bit of work to do yourself, I'm afraid.
