The runtime components can be downloaded from here. There is a separate link for .NET Framework 3.0 Runtime Components Beta2 for Windows XP + SP2. But similar runtime components for Jun CTP are available for Windows XP only, no SP2. This is confusing but I took "Jun CTP" in the link name as the main indicator and hoped it was just a typo. Plug and Pray and yep, that was the correct runtime component.
The Windows SDK can be downloaded from here. If I click on 3rd bullet to download Windows SDK, then this is SDK for Beta2 of Vista and WinFX Runtime Components. This seemed incorrect but I still tried installing it and hoping it was a typo as in the previous case. But nope, not this time. Related Resources on the runtime website finally showed a link to the correct Windows SDK.
Now I can get back to my work.
BTW, The svcutil version is 3.0.4219.0.
