I just updated a RH9 system using the 8.13.6 RPMs from;O=A. And this was one that had 
the sendmail 8.12.x installed and then 8.13.3 installed top of it compiled 
from source. Didn't want to recompile from source for this one so just used 
the RPM from city-fan and ran it with rpm -Uvh and it's working fine.
