No it doesn't. As u can see it doesn't tell how to create a CRL using the certificates within the keytool.

After further research ;-) I don't believe it's possible to access the CRL with keytool.  You'll need to write some Java code to do this.

See the following API docs for help with this (depending upon the version of JDK you are using)

For 1.4:
