Hi Gert,  Yes, it's possible.

In the coreboot payload menu, select
"[ ] Add a PXE ROM"

This opens up a new menu
"PXE Options --->"

 In that menu, the top option is:
"PXE ROM to use (Add an existing PXE ROM image)  --->"
select that, and switch to
"( ) Build and add an iPXE ROM"

Select the version and the PCI IDs, then save and exit.

This will build iPXE option rom into the coreboot.rom file.
