It might be interesting to begin sifting through everything Microsoft
has distributed these DLL's with to find out if there's any that allow
redistribution.  If they're redistributable then this simply becomes a
packaging issue as a quick fix.  Barring that, if MS allows for
redistribution of those DLL's with a valid VB app, then maybe someone
can write a simple VB program and distribute the DLL's with it.
