The RELENG_5_5 tag is static, so nothing will change in it.  You
mention a patch version below however, so you should be aware that
only the most crucial security fixes are ever applied to security

This problem is fixed in RELENG_5, so if you were to upgrade to
5-stable you wouldn't have this problem anymore.

You should also seriously consider upgrading to 6-stable at least,
since fewer and fewer fixes will be backported to the 5.x branch as
time goes by.
