DBCLEAN_LOGDAYS in the dcc_conf file is used only by the cron-dccd script
with `find`.  Probably the easiest way to use it is to run the cron-dccd
script from the shell.

I just now realized that the installation instructions as well as
the script itself ought to mention pruning the dccm or dccproc logs
with cron-dccd.
