The log message says it comes from `dccm`.

It means that the DCC client code went through the list of servers
in the /var/dcc/map file and found none whose names could be resolved
into IP addresses.  Have you specified any servers?  Is your system
able to resolve or convert there names to IP addresses?

The installation scripts and make files install the names "localhost"
and ""  Can your system resolve those?

The command `cdcc info` will display the conents of the /var/dcc/map file
including IP addresses for the server host names.
