No,

It is possible to use the Angstrom kernel which can be installed without uboot.

Technically boot was never needed, but I think most of the development has gone on with the younggun kernels which I think do require uboot. Sometimes things that won't work on a Angstrom / Altboot setup have been fixed with the new youngun kernels.
