Version 1.2.40 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dccd.tar.Z  and

http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/CHANGES starts with:

    Include win32.makin2 that was missing from 1.2.39.
    Do not respond to clients when the database is broken to ensure that
	they switch to another server.
    Add missing "option greylist-on" support to cgi-bin/edit-whiteclnt
    Remove DCC_PROTO_HOMEDIR support for building RPM or other packages
	and add `./configure --installroot=DIR`
    Adjust threshold for `dbclean -F` to keep Solaris systems from spending
	hours in dbclean.
    Add `dbclean -f` to turn off default `dbclean -F` on Solaris for
	installations where the file system has been tuned for the
	large, randomly accessed file that is a DCC database.

If you are running dccd on Solaris and have less than 3 GBytes of RAM,
this might be particularly useful.

If you have previously installed 1.2.12 or newer, then
/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should make it easy to fetch, build, and
install this version.
The automatically generated /var/dcc/dcc_conf-new might make it easy
to generate a new dcc_conf file for turning on greylisting.
