Version 1.2.51 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:

    Fix cause of "packet length 44 too small" complaints by DCC servers.
	With an empty mail body and no useful headers, DCC clients were
	sending empty requests to DCC servers.
    Add `cdcc "debug TTL=x"` to help find firewalls that filter DCC requests.
    Use shared libmilter.so in dccm as suggested by James Carlson.
    Fix Body checksum when MIME boundary crosses buffer boundary from
	Richard Lyons.
    Stop crash in dccm reported by Krzysztof Snopek.
    Deprecate misc/dccdnsbl.m4 and change misc/hackmc to work with
	FEATURE(dnsbl) and FEATURE(endnsbl) in modern sendmail.
    Make it compile on Mac OS X and DragonFly FreeBSD.
    Reduce the size of greylisting databases.
    Separate DCC query mode for dccm and dccifd from greylist query mode.
    Add `dccd -G weak-IP` to whitelist not only a {sender,target,IP address}
	after passing the greylist embargo, but anything from the IP address.
	Use this facility with caution; it might be a bad idea.

    The last change requires that all greylist clients and servers
	be upgraded simultaneously.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and install
this version.  If you relocate or change the ownership of the files,
this time consider giving updatedcc the appropriate ./configure parameters  
with -e and -c to automate that process in the future.
