You can try it out, and I wonder how far you get. Without a recompile I
guess that it won't work, and I wouldn't want to try it out.

But: You can always install the source rpm and try to add the patches
included (especially the UseLogin patch:
openssh-2.9.9p2.uselogin-security-patch.dif). If the recompile works, then
you still can run the new daemon on a different port for testing.

compiled/source/sshd -p 24

ssh server -l remoteuser -p 24

or whichever port you wish.
