Sure.  The easy part is just moving all of the RCS files; the repository
format is intended to be platform-neutral, so just moving them (as
binary files, please) is all you need to do.  The more challenging part
is merging all of the administrative files in CVSROOT.  For the most
part you can just concatenate them, but beware of patterns that match
more than intended in the new, merged repository.
