Question :

I have created a Power Point presentation that uses a Power View view as one of the slides (has the Interact button).

The question is : How portable is the presentation? Does the powerPivot workbook need to follow it around?

You need to have a working connection to the SharePoint library where your PowerPivot workbook is stored.

Ok. Is there anyway to simply package the PowerPivot document with the PPT presentation (cut the need for a SP connection out of the loop?)

No. A working internet connection should suffice if the library is reachable from an external network.

Imagine you were using a Tabular server instead of PowerPivot with a total size of 25 Gigabyte. That would be quite some PowerPoint presentation
Packaging the data within PowerPoint would blow up the size and would need it's own SSAS database integrated.

edit: I can imagine one of the reasons for this is also because Power View export to PowerPoint is a SharePoint-only feature.
