Sure, see this post on MorphZone
about eventually removing Boost dependency for compatibility with NG Amigas (and other platforms). Currently it only uses Boost headers, no Boost libraries required.
SDL in XAMOS is implemented as a kind of wrapper too, so it shouldn't be too hard to use an alternative engine to SDL (given a rewrite of the graphical front-end) and make it a compiler option. This would most likely be required to build a version for ARM-based Windows RT tablets (using WinRT and Metro), or Windows 8's Metro (it works on Windows 8 desktop already), which don't support OpenGL and currently not SDL either. It should soon be possible to build a minimal (text-only) version without SDL, for easy debugging on more OS's.
