In other words, you want to get a list of all pages that *don't*
link to a certain page (category)?

Believe it or not, you can do the following:

    (:pagelist -Category.Recipe list=normal:)

and you'll get pretty close.  The only case this will get
wrong is if a page happens to have the string "Category.Recipe"
in it somewhere that isn't really a category link (which ought
to be pretty rare).
