What do you mean by "portable"?

Servers run many services, LiveCode being just one.  They also need DNS. 
  So using LC Server under Apache at a Web host seems a good way to go, no?

Besides, neither mchttpd nor any other standalone will do quite what LC 
Server does in terms of mixing HTML with executable LiveCode.   The 
merge function available to standalones is quite different from the one 
called implicitly in Server (no control structures, for example).

mchttd can be a good solution for providing specialized services, but 
for integration with publicly accessible servers LC Server is the way to go.
