Do I need to edit boards.txt to upload using AVRISP MkII?

I'm using a Pro Trinket (5V) and would like to bypass the bootloader to speed up startup. I have an Atmel AVRISP MkII, which is an option under Tools/Programmers (I'm on IDE 1.8.1, Windows 10). Can I just select this, make the proper h/w connections, and go, or do I have to edit boards.txt, too? If the latter, what changes do I have to make? Thanks.

Tools/Programmer, choose AVRISP mkII
