Yes, kind of.  If you are using for spidering and have in the *spider's* config:

    validate_links => 1,

it should report broken link.  But, it's not a very advanced link checker.

I also have some memory of a problem with it.  It assumes any link that returns a status of 
200 thorugh 299 is ok.  You may consider a redirect ok.

Any feedback you can provide about using that feature would be helpful.
