Yes, you can build it into RedBoot in its CDL configuration:

It might be possible to allow runtime configuration of the IP address even
though RedBoot's net stack has already started, but it would need testing.
It would also therefore need some new command to set it (since unlike
fconfig data it is not persistent).

There's at least one bugzilla bug open about this.
