Do you mean that brltty will not build with libusb-1.0 (which has a
different API than 0.1) or it will not work with 0.1-api-on-top-of-1.0
libusb-compat? Gentoo claims that it will build (and presumably work)
Right now, libusb-win32 is completely useless for anyone running x64
Windows (and with Win7 this is becoming more common) due to its special
driver, where libusb-1.0 uses Windows APIs and therefore works on both.
So switching to libusb-compat for the 0.1 API is IMO pretty important.
