Version 1.1.16 of the DCC source is in 
http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/source/dccd.tar.Z and
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dccd.tar.Z

If you are still running a version of the DCC server older than 1.1.5,
it would be really swell if you could upgrade.   Older versions did not
tolerate paths on checksum records longer than 7 hops.  The global network
of servers is now so large that it is practically certain that older
versions of dccd are reject checksums from distant parts of the network.
The compression mechanisms minimize redunancy in the floods, so old 
servers are not getting all checksums and not passing them on.
