It's possible, but I fail to see how.  Even if I'm wrong, one could simply
place a copy of (the tiny script) "ht" in a private path component to keep
it going.

In searching comp.text.tex at google groups for "ht latex" and "htlatex", I
get only 26 hits,
mostly rather old, for the former, while I get 478 for the latter. (It's
not clear that all 26 matches
actually represent calls to "ht".)

While I find many references to "htlatex" in my log of this discussion, I
don't think I've found
any references to calling "ht" as a command [in reading about 100 lines of
output from
egrep '(\W|^)ht(\W|$)' on a mail folder ].
