Not quite:  look at

or the version on HEAD to see how you have to tweak the sources.

Note that the RELENG_4_5 sources have already been patched up to
8.11.6p2 which should be immune to the problem described in the latest
advisory (FreeBSD-SA-03:07.sendmail).  It's entirely possible 8.11.7
will be imported to that branch at some point
