No and yes;

... if you use the spl uboot dts and so forth for the pine64+ (or the rock64) and then copy over the /rootfs from Alpine , you might be able to make it work;  fire219 was able to make fedora work this way;

Having said that, typically the gnu+linux needs to be built specifically for the hardware it will be running on; because every SoC is different--  a different processor.

Many SoCs can use mainline kernel + appropriate devicetree file to boot, but most SoCs don't get good mainline support
