You can do this using the Virtual Vectors interface into RedBoot.
The call:

Where <fconfig_name> is a string containing the 'fconfig' short name for
the data item (use 'fc -l -n' to see what the names are).  The variable 
<type> defines the type of data.  You can find the #define's for these 
in the include file "flash_config.h".

Note: the result of this call is a boolean - true if the data was
found, false if not.
