Version 1.2.45 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dccd.tar.Z  and

This version is not important except on DCC servers with version 1.2.42
through 1.2.44 with less than 512 MByte of RAM.  Those versions will
use all of RAM and fail to adjust the default `dbclean -E` and -e values
when there is less than 512 MByte.  This is a serious bug for those systems.

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

    Fix dccd database "window" size computation bug that chose 3 GBytes
	on systems with less than 512 MByte.
    Fix `cdcc "stats all"` to use the right host name from Leandro Santi.
    Increase `dccd -R` default rate limits for all anonymous clients
	and for individual authenticated clients..
    updatedcc understands -V x.y.z unless no old version x.y.z is available.

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.
