Depending on the hardware, it's not difficult at all. See the -H option at:


no other tool than ifconfig necessary: from man ifconfig
       hw class address
              Set the hardware address of this interface,  if  the
              device driver  supports  this  operation.  The keyword
              must be followed by the name of the hardware class  and
              the  printable ASCII  equivalent of the hardware address.
              Hardware classes currently supported include  ether
              (Ethernet),  ax25  (AMPR AX.25), ARCnet and netrom (AMPR
So, 'ifconfig hw ether [adress]' works for me ;-)
