no http_referer apache mod_rewrite condition?

I understand how to create a 404 or a redirect when the http_referer is an untrusted site, but I would like to do this when no http_referer or a blank http_referer is returned. Can this be done? TIA

No time to check in depth but this should pretty much do it:
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} =""
RewriteRule <some rule to apply>

You are right. The way I was doing that included the blank referer and the website referer. I thought it was a "staging" line or something. I tried commenting it out and voila, all was as I wished. Thanks.
