This didn't quite work.  I just upgraded my test server to 1.2.15.
On restart, it logged:

  Nov 19 17:46:08 setup01 dccm[6469]: [ID 239807 mail.notice] /usr/local/dcc/whiteclnt.dccw has obsolete format

The whiteclnt.dccw had been updated, but when I sent e-mail to the test
server, it logged:

  Nov 19 17:47:52 setup01 sm-mta[6480]: [ID 801593 mail.error] hAJNlqBf006480: Milter (dcc): error connecting to filter: Connection refused by localhost
  Nov 19 17:47:52 setup01 sm-mta[6480]: [ID 801593] hAJNlqBf006480: Milter (dcc): to error state
  Nov 19 17:47:52 setup01 sm-mta[6480]: [ID 801593] hAJNlqBf006480: Milter: initialization failed, temp failing commands

When I stopped and started DCC, e-mail was accepted and delivered correctly.
