As has been noted elsewhere, there are compile-time options for this in 
the 1.4.x series.

In the 1.5 betas (after 1.5pre8), there are also runtime options available 
in the wharf config.  These options are: AnimateSteps, AnimateStepsMain, 
and AnimateDelay.  For example, in my wharf config, I have:

*WharfAnimateSteps      1
*WharfAnimateStepsMain  1
*WharfAnimateDelay      1

... this effectively turns off the animation, but other values are 
possible.  See README.new_options for a quick description of new options.
