No, I think you would need to run GACUTIL as well or use Windows Explorer to drag the assembly into the cache.
Assemblies in the cache have strong names and are checked too see if they have been changed or tampered with.
If you deploy a new version of an assembly that needs to reside in the GAC you have to import the updtaed assmbly into the GAC.
