Not really. There are 2 main reasons:

1. FPC is not thread safe, and lots of features require threads.
2. The system units of Delphi and FPC are wildly different, so compiling it
   from scratch will also not work very well.

That said, the Libc and Qt units should be compileable with FPC, so the
basic classes should also compile. One problem may be the streaming support,
FPC streams its components in a slightly different way.
