Not without a change to the source, as far as I know.  It would be a
pretty simple change, though.

If you use Xvnc directly (without the vnc-server wrapper) you can choose
to not use authentication at all (don't specify the -rfbauth file).  You
can also edit vnc-server to do this.  Just comment out the line that has
"rfbauth" in it.
