The map.txt file is merely an ASCII archive of the real /var/dcc/map
file.  It is no more than the result of

    cdcc info > map.txt

map.txt can be used to restore /var/dcc/map by `cdcc "load map.txt"`

In your position, I would arrange to have map files on all of my DCC
clients contain:

    yourserver.com    RTT-1000 ms   client-ID passwd
The RTT bias in the first line ensures that your DCC clients prefer
your server.   The client-ID and password exempt your DCC clients
from the `dccd -u` delay imposed on anonymous clients.

The Makefiles I ship install /var/dcc/map from the map.txt file
generated from the shipped map.txt file only if /var/dcc/map does
not already exist.  Otherwise, they would break too many installations.
