Which model?  This page shows some Synology boxes using x86, while 
others use ARM-compatible Marvells:

The x86 boxes use Atom, Celeron, and Core i3, and some higher-end models 
use Xeon, so they should run LC Server well.  You may need to add a 
package or two, depending on what ships in Synology's OS, Disktation 
Manager (DSM).

For ARM it's possible that the LC Server build for Raspberry Pi might work.

The most recent build of LC for RPi is 7.0.4, available here:

It's a Zip archive easily extracted with the zip command in bash.

That said, while DSM is Linux-based like Raspbian, I have no clue about 
dependencies on specific packages which may (or hopefully may not) 
prevent it from running under DSM.

But seems worth giving it a shot - I'd be interested to hear how it goes.
