I'd really like to use EntLib 3.0 for validating business entities, but I'm not sure about the prefered approach of including the EntLib DLLs in the solution. Should I recompile WSSF myself using the new EntLib libraries? I can't use the GAC, because we will use xcopy deployment.

Only the Reference Implementations are referencing the EntLib binaries. The packages that use some EntLib assembly will look into the registry key below to get the EntLib binaries location so you may only need to update this value and therefore won't need any package compilation.
