Question Qmail QMAILQUEUE patch

I am trying to implement a qmail server running qmail-scanner. I have read in the qmail-scanner doc that qmail 1.03 needs to be patched in order for qmail-scanner function properly.

My questions are:
1- Do I need to install the patch? I downloaded qmail-1.03.tar.gz just last week. Do I still need to install the patch, or is the latest version already patched?

2- I have read some posts on applying the patch, and I want to make sure I have the proper steps. A post I read I had the following:
downloaded the qmqil-1.03.tar.gz and unzipped it. Put the
patch in the same folder (qmail-1.03) and ran patch -p1 < qmailqueue-patch.

Another post had the following:
Here is how I add qmailqueue to an already running qmail system.

# qmailctl stop (or however you stop your mailserver)

# cp -a /var/qmail/control /var/qmail/control-backup
# tar zxfv qmail-1.03.tar.gz
# cp qmailqueue.patch qmail-1.03
# cd qmail-1.03
# make setup check
# ./config-fast
# cp -fdpR /var/qmail/control-backup/* /var/qmail/control

# qmailctl start (or however you start your mailserver

Now you have QMAILQUEUE support and nothing else has changed.

I need clarification which one of these procedures patches qmail. If both do, which is better? or which order are they done in?
