Are you sure that the dccm binary is being compiled?  Are there any
error messages when you run /var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc on the other

Note that when running DCc clients on machines other than the DCC server,
you must ensure that the other machines have good /var/dcc/map
files.  A way to do that is:

  1. on the DCC server machine, use this command install the server's name:
      cdcc "add  RTT-1000 ms  32768 secret"
    where "secret" is the password for client-ID 32768 in /var/dcc/ids
    on the server machine.  
    Run that command as root or a UID that can write /var/dcc/map.

  2. update /var/dcc/map.txt with
       cdcc info /var/dcc/map.txt

  3. copy /var/dcc/map.txt to the other machines and load it into /var/dcc/map
       cdcc "load map.txt"
