MonoDevelop uses xsp when you "run" as ASP.NET project within MD, and
you can change the port in project options. It defaults to 8080.

AFAIK it's possible to run mod_mono on the mac but you'll have to
build it from source. And MonoDevelop doesn't integrate with
Apache/mono_mono, so the dev cycle won't be so easy.
