What is the difference between what you got from Gentoo and the official
DCC releases?  What do you get from Gentoo, binaries, some source,
only installation scripts, or something else?

`dccifd -b` is odd, because it tells dccifd to not go into the background.

`dccifd -Q` is also unusual, because Query-mode turns off reporting
mail to DCC servers.  If everyone ran with -Q, then the global DCC
server databases would be empty.  I think -Q makes sense only if your
system also runs mail through a DCC client that does not use -Q.
There are cases where it running mail through two DCC clients is
unavoidable, but they are rare and generally undesirable.
