A (physically) headless system can run Lazarus etc. without any 
problems, provided that you can login using X11 (XDMCP), VNC, or SSH. 
Obviously appropriate underlying libraries are needed (gtk2 or 
whatever), but apart from that the only caveat is that building Lazarus 
or programs of any significant size tends to be memory-intensive- but 
generally within the scope of an Rpi.
