Yes. Obviously, it may be more work to do (you need to implement not only
the functionality expected from the RTL, but also the part usually
supported by the OS), but it's certainly possible and some people have
already done that before (some people even created their own OS in FPC).
There's some more information on porting to new platforms in our Wiki.
Moreover, you can find potential basis for such an effort in the directory
/rtl/embedded in FPC sources.
