Not sure if this helps, but do you require a CGI style server?
Does it need to be extremely small and simple (though that's relative)?
If not, and servlet-style intelligent web applications also suit
your needs, you might be able to pick one of Python's web frameworks
and just run that on your local machine. Most won't need Apache.

At least, mine doesn't: Snakelets

I've heard from one user that he's using Snakelets to run a
web application off a CD-ROM...
(try an older Snakelets version <1.20 for that).

Good luck
