[MonoDevelop] What is needed to run XSP as a standalone server?

I'm trying to setup a minimal copy of XSP for students to use in an ASP.NET
intro course. The idea is to give them something they can put on a memory stick,
use in labs and take home to work on which is agnostic about OS or compiler
(most use Windows but not all). I did a similar thing previously for JSP with a
zipped copy of Jetty, which worked splendidly.
I have Mono 2.10.9 installed on Windows, and can successfully run XSP directly
from the installation. However, the executable (xsp2.exe) is in
lib\mono\2.0\winhack, and the server environment is in lib\xsp\test. I want to
create a directory containing a minimal set of files (xsp2.exe, xsp.exe.config,
Mono.WebServer2.dll, and whatever else is needed) which I can zip up and give to
the students for them to add their own .aspx files to. I tried copying xsp2.exe
to lib\xsp\test as a starting point and running it there. However, all I got was
a "File Not Found" exception for Mono.WebServer2.
I copied Mono.WebServer2.dll across, and then got the same for Mono.Security.
When I copied Mono.Security.dll, the error refers to Mono.WebServer2 "or one of
its dependencies" (without telling me which one).
Can anyone tell me what I need as a minimal setup please?
