Dccd does not create a process ID file, because it is not needed.  The
       cdcc "id 54321; stop"
shuts down dccd.  That is how /var/dcc/libexec/stop-dccd works.

Dccifd and dccm do create pid files, because they do not have command
interfaces and programs like cdcc.

See also /var/dcc/libexec/rcDCC, which should have symbolics in 
/etc/rc.d, /usr/local/rc.d, or wherever your system prefers.
