Yes, I'm pretty sure (unless there is more than one at-2.9a-1 out there).
The following diff works for me:

Sendmail does provide /usr/bin/rmail, but I don't think this is suitable
for atrun. I tried it and it doesn't work. I chose /usr/lib/sendmail in
the diff above, because this is what cron uses. /usr/bin/mail should work
also, I think, but as it calls sendmail to deliver the mail (if I remember
correctly) I guess we could just as well use /usr/lib/sendmail (which is
provided by both smail and sendmail).
