One problem is that Slideshow uses `collection-path' to locate
window-manager icons. In SVN, now, Slideshow uses `include-bitmap' for
the icons, so you shouldn't have to copy any collection files.

You can use `include-bitmap' from `(lib "include-bitmap.ss" "mrlib")'
to have your presentation's images inlined into the executable, too.
Then you should need only the EXE and DLLs.
