I've recently been given some "home grown" dissectors that were compiled for Wireshark 1.6.3. The current version that is on my Mageia 3 Linux system is 1.8.15. Can those older .so implemented dissectors be used w/o recompiling?

No the API is not frosen and there has been API changes so plugins has to be recompiled with the version they are to be run with.
