The same as what is installed by the minimal MikTeX install option.
However, from reading the FAQ, that may be \emph{very} minimal, as 
provides an option to download as needed. I didn't find a file list 
so no actual list of files.

Another option is to mirror what is available in OzTeX.

 From the top of my head:

latex/base (includes the graphics bundle iirc)
makeindex (xindy will not compile, the clisp they can use will not 
compile on OS X, the clisp that compiles on OS X will not build xindy. 
Trust me, I tried).
