As others have posted, not without either doing IP address
manipulation or using the patches available out there.

In terms of working around the issue, I guess it depends on what
you're trying to accomplish.  In a situation where I wanted a jail
host to have an internal private address and an external public
address, the problem was solved by assigning the private address to
the jail and then using a firewall to redirect connections destined to
the public address in to the private address.

I'll also add my voice to the recommendations to use ezjail -- it does
all the heavy lifting for you.
