If it's a supported CPU type and you've got a suitable build toolchain,
sure. Seven or eight years ago we were getting a good laugh out of the
fact that you could run PG on a PlayStation 2.
The real issue with the kind of hardware you're describing is going to
be the finite write lifetime of a flash device. For a low-update
application it'll probably be okay, but PG could very easily destroy a
flash in no time if you aren't careful to minimize updates.
