Not sure of the parameters, but take a look at "Small C" by James Hendrix,
published by DDJ.

There were several C compilers that ran on CP/M, where the TPA
is no more than twice the size that you want. Those included Aztec/Manx,
and BDS C by Leor Zolman - didn't he recently release it into public domain?
IIRC, BDS C did not have floating point support; but you're better off
without that anyway.
