Short answer, no - they're effectively different libraries.

Longer answer, maybe - it depends on the package. The two versions
aren't compatible, but the differences are small enough that some
packages took the approach of supporting both while transitioning from
0.10 to 1.0 APIs. Those that do, usually provide some kind of configure
option, e.g --with-gst=1.0 or something like that.
