No -- don't do that. Shlib version numbers are changed for a reason.
Instead either install the misc/compat4x port or else set COMPAT4X=yes
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.
