Yes you can, you'll just have to set the netmask to 0xffffffff as you do
with aliased IPs. This is a documented requirement. From the ifconfig
alias Establish an additional network address for this interface. This
is sometimes useful when changing network numbers, and one wishes
to accept packets addressed to the old interface. If the address
is on the same subnet as the first network address for this
interface, a non-conflicting netmask must be given. Usually
0xffffffff is most appropriate.
I have something similar set up at my apartment using gbit ether and
nge0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 10.10.10.2 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.10.10.255
fwe1: flags=8943<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,PROMISC,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 10.10.10.56 netmask 0xffffffff broadcast 10.10.10.56
