You know what would be really nice is a non installer distro for MVC. Currently I run the installer locally and copy the bits from program files into our project lib folder and point the project assembly references there. I don't mind running an installer to get the VS templates but its a pain to sift through the bits and figure out which ones I need for the site to compile (Esp with MVC3 as there are a number of assemblies). Simply having a zip or better yet a nupack package would be a lot simpler.
Storing the assemblies in our lib folder ensures that everyone is using the same bits and eliminates the need of running an installer on all our servers when there is a new version.
