I just installed this version on my test server.  So far, it seems
to work normally.  However, I got these errors when starting it:

	# sh /etc/init.d/rcDCC start
	/usr/local/dcc/libexec/start-dccm: test: argument expected
	/usr/local/dcc/libexec/start-dccifd: test: argument expected

The culprit seems to be this code:

	if test ! -z "$GREY_CLIENT_ARGS"; then
	    if test -z `expr "X$GREY_CLIENT_ARGS" : '.*\(-G\)'`; then

Following the instructions, I had put:


in dcc_conf.  This results in the backticked expression above
producing a null result.  My workaround was to change it to:


-Gary Mills-    -Unix Support-    -U of M Academic Computing and Networking-
