As things now stand I don't believe the spiders are doing much of anything with JS. However it's not safe to depend upon this always being the case. So if you want to no follow links you'll probably want to no follow them.

However, going back at least as far as the Traiffic-Power fiasco during 2004 where TP client sites started getting nailed for their sneaky JS redirects, Google has been able to look at and analyze JS in HTML code to automatically assign a penalty.
That's what all of those TP created sites were nailed over. Hence the reason I'm not personally willing to take a stance on what they can or cannot see in JS.

In the case of TP, obviously, they had the ability and made the choice to interpret the JS so they could slap those sites down. (And rightfully so, IMO.) TP apparently counted on Google not "understanding" JS, and it came back to bite them, big time.
In the case of JS-only navigation, I imagine they could follow it if they really wanted to, but my guess is they've decided it takes too long and/or it's too resource-intensive to justify at the moment. Not to mention that it's so easy (and so good for accessibility) for webmasters to include alternate non-JS navigation.
If something came to light that they thought was impacting the quality or integrity of their SERPs, though -- even if it made use of JS -- I suspect they could pretty quickly mobilize a response.
My Can they handle JS navigation? Probably.
Do they? Doesn't seem they do now, but I wouldn't necessarily rely on that situation continuing forever.

See the discussion in this thread among others.
Do remember however that most of the nofollow discussion lately centers around how Google handles nofollowed links. The other search engines treat it differently last time I bothered to check.

So, in answer to the original question, it may be possible depending on how the script/html is written.
