The project will compile with older assemblies, however there will be a lot of breaking changes, especially with Silverlight 4. So, it is highly recommend to upgrade in order to compile your project against SL4 and benefit from its approvement. I can suggest you to use one of our latest assemblies, at best the Q3 2011 SP1 version.
