Not sure but i think there are some symlinks that are also created when installing a .so file, but i am sure that is not always the case. I am also sure several years back i did compile some comps and had to manually copy them and they worked.
So chances are that is will work, but the 2.7 to 2.8 version might be more problematic due to axis <=> joints.

Pretty sure those files from 2.8 will not work in 2.7 without heavy modification.

Why not simply install 2.8. Pre-compiled versions are avalible from buildbot, and can be easily installed using Synaptic
