An --exclude-docs option was added recently (not in a released version
yet, will be in 3.9.3).  But that does not probably do exactly what you
want as it makes this link checker exclude links _in documents_ whose
URI matches the given regexp.

A similar --exclude-links or --exclude-uris is perhaps what you are
after.  Filed as http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=689
