Yes it is.

Do you have the partial PDF driver files, from:
   http://www-texdev.ics.mq.edu.au/xypic/xypdf.tar.gz .

Another way is to use the  ps4pdf  package, which allows you to
automate the process of doing the diagrams first with a PS backend,
creating PDF images to be imported into the pdf-LaTeX document.
