Could you please be more specific?

- which version of u-boot?
- in what way does your build fail?

I've just been through the process of porting u-boot to a freshly
developed PXA255-base board, and even though I didn't define any network
controller I did't experience any such weird dependency problem.

Perhaps what you're seeing is a side-effect of some configuration error?
