Just wanted to say thank you to those that provided info (even to
those that provided the somewhat sardonic advice). New binaries
verified. Mission accomplished.

The sendmail binaries from SA-03:04 (on ftp.freebsd.org)
are the same
binaries you would get if you CVSup'd on the security
branch and rebuilt.
So that's correct -- the version number does not change.
The patch added a new log message which you can check for. Do
`strings /path/to/sendmail | grep Dropped'.
