It's unlikely that there will be any "official" word that the binary
patch you're using will work on releases earlier than 4.6. As the
upgrade from sendmail-8.11.6 to sendmail-8.12.x and the corresponding
fun'n'games due to dropping the SUID bit on sendmail and the import of
/etc/rc.sendmail all occurred between release 4.5 and release 4.6 I
doubt that it would work entirely smoothly.
It's possible that the patched version might work on a 4.5 system, but
don't throw away the old sendmail binary until you're sure. It's
probable that you will need to:
chmod 4755 /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail (Only on 4.5-RELEASE or prior)
and you will see complaints in /var/log/maillog about inconsistent
versions of sendmail.cf if it does work at all.
Alternatively you could either try installing the ports version of
sendmail or cvsup'ing to the latest RELENG_4_5 sources and running a
