Version 1.3.18 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and
http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z

The biggest change is the new code to let dccm, dccifd, and dccproc
recognize local MX servers and look in other Received: headers for the
real source of mail messages.  This feature is important for the DNS
blacklist support and DCC Reputations, because I did not realize how
many installations pass mail through complicated networks of SMTP
servers before applying DCC filtering.  It needs documenting and perhaps
some more testing, but the other bug fixes needed to be released now.

http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/CHANGES starts with:

    Fix `dccm -aIGNORE` crash reported by Juergen Georgi.
    Fix detection of duplicates reputation reports.
    Initial support for "mx ip" entries in whiteclnt files.
    Fix compression by dccd of delayed reputation reports.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and install   
this version.
