Yes, sure it is possible and no problem. The order they are called by
Sendmail is determined by either the simple order in the sendmail.cf
file (originated by the sendmail.mc file you created the .cf from) or by
an explicit definition of confINPUT_MAIL_FILTERS, like you use below.

> INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`clmilter',`S=local:/var/run/clamav/clamd.sock, F=,
> T=S:4m;R:4m')dnl

From that "spamassassin" milter would come first and then the "clmilter"

> define(`confINPUT_MAIL_FILTERS', `clmilter')dnl

Due to this definition _only_ the "clmilter" milter will be used and the
"spamassassin" milter ommited.

From the Sendmail README:

"In general, INPUT_MAIL_FILTER() should be used unless you need to
more filters than you want to use for `confINPUT_MAIL_FILTERS'.
Note that setting `confINPUT_MAIL_FILTERS' after any INPUT_MAIL_FILTER()
commands will clear the list created by the prior INPUT_MAIL_FILTER()
