serp belt and ac compressor

My '87 190D has a long history of ac probs. Most recently the clutch pulley broke and ate my serp belt. Got a new clutch/pulley installed, but now the compressor doesn't work at all anymore (even with my jerry-rigged wiring, Klima cutout) and the compressor now has an internal rattle. Truth is, I'm sick of air conditioning. My question is, is it possible to get a shorter serpentine belt that leaves out the compressor entirely? Isn't that the way the serp belt would run for non-ac/european cars? Is it possible, you guys who know these things?

Thanks in advance.
