No -- don't do that.  Shlib version numbers are changed for a reason.

Instead either install the misc/compat4x port or else set COMPAT4X=3Dyes
in /etc/make.conf and rebuild your world.  This will let you run apps
compiled for 4.x on a 5.x system.

Yes -- for libc the shlib version number is the same as the major
version number of the OS.
