Why make 3 packages?  There are three only because MAPS wanted to keep
some of my code secret from MAPS's customers.  A dccproc package
without dccd and dccm might make a little sense, but the dccm package
is not worthwhile.  It's not as if the extra bits of the complete
package are big enough to care about.

What's wrong with the RPM spec file from Andrew Macpherson in the
misc directory in the source.  For convenience, see

There were changes made to the DCC source to let that spec file work
without local changes.  Is there something wrong with it?
