You can do it indirectly using MacVector.  Take your nucleotide 
sequence and translate it into the amino acid sequence.  Then use 
the reverse translate option on that to get back a degenerate
nucleotide sequence.  Then you can search that for restriction sites
to see all the possible sites that can be introduced into the
DNA silently.
