>Is there any way of excluding a component footprint from a DRC check?

You can set special rules for footprints, components, component classes, or 
specific footprint pads, from some DRC checks, particularly Clearance 
Constraint and a series of Manufacturing constraints, most of which involve 
calculated layers and so are not really DRC rules, as well as Placement 
Constraints and the Unconnected Pin rule.

This does not, however, exclude the footprint from DRC; rather one sets a 
rule such that the component will not generate a DRC error because it 
satisfies the special rule. There is a priority relationship for rules, too 
much to go into at the moment.

If it were stated more specifically what Mr. Turner wants to do, we might 
give more specific answers. But a little experimentation should go a long 
way....
