You can do something like this:

- Create a "plugins" directory in your theme directory.
- Copy the plugins to that directory.
- In your theme's functions.php do a require_once() for each plugin's
main file you want to enable.

Note that if you do this, users won't be able to disable the plugins
in the Plugins admin panel--they won't see them at all there.
