Don't know about the latest MBP's but I was able to do this with the 2690 off my Intel Macbook Pro of several generations ago. So what's keeping the latest MBP's from doing so?
Here is some print in red from NEC's website, this is why i'm a little wary,
"Mac OS 10.5.6 prevents SpectraView from being able to communicate with the display monitor on PPC based Macs and some Intel based Macs. Customers should update to Mac OS 10.5.7 to avoid this issue. If upgrading to Mac OS 10.5.7 does not fix this issue, and you are using an Nvidia video card, please contact NEC Technical Support directly for assistance.
The 13-inch MacBook, and 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pros with Mini DisplayPort video outputs released by Apple in October 2008 and January 2009 require Mac OS 10.5.7 in order to work with SpectraView using the DisplayPort to SingleLink DVI adapter from Apple. SpectraView will not be able to calibrate NEC monitors when using Mac OS 10.5.6 and earlier on these machines.
The DisplayPort to DualLink DVI adapter required to run the LCD3090WQXi at native resolution (2560x1600) is not yet compatible with SpectraView. It is recommended to use the DisplayPort to SingleLink DVI adapter from Apple to calibrate the display, then switch back to the DisplayPort to DualLink DVI adapter in order to use the native resolution of the display.
The following models released by Apple in March 2009 have not yet been tested by NEC for compatibility with SpectraView. Compatibility information for these models will be posted as it becomes available.:
MacMini with Mini DVI and Mini DisplayPort outputs
iMacs with Mini DisplayPort output"
