Make the field with the link (url) of type "Not mapped". Don't forget to 
change the mapping of the link text to include the a-tag (OUTER) you are 
mapping it to, otherwise the a-tag from the template will still be 

You can then change the Data Structure XML to make the link with Typoscript.

The part with the link text will have something like:

10 = TEXT
10.current = 1

If the field with the link URL is called 'field_url' you can add
10.stdWrap.typolink.parameter.field = field_url

If that still renders an a-tag with an empty link field you can easily 
surpress it with an if-property.
