        No.  It's compiled with socket library functions in the code, and
thus must be linked with a TCP/IP library whether you are planning to use
those functions or not.  It in theory could be #ifdef'ed to exclude those
functions if you don't intend to use them, but that would be a major
undertaking involving a large number of the C modules.

        There used to be a DECNET (instead of TCP/IP) build for the
libwww of that sort, but it wasn't maintained, and the LYfoo.c modules
all assume TCP/IP.
