I did that... back in 1.3.2 or thereabouts. Here's the Makefile comment:

# Added new "swish-search" target with INDEX_READ_ONLY, fixed CFLAGS passing
#  (removes code to WRITE index files, for more secure searching)
# SRE 11/17/99

The search version is incapable of writing files, specifically to
satisfy my sysadmin's security concerns. Don't know if it was
preserved in newer releases, but it SHOULD BE.
