Version 1.3.55 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.55 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with:
    Dccd falls back on foreground DNS resolution of flooding peer names
	when fork() fails, perhaps because of a lack of swap space.
    Fix structure alignment bug introduced in 1.3.51/2.3.51 and seen in
	Solaris on SPARC CPUs using `gcc -O` reported by Stephan Schulz.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and
install the commercial or free version, depending on the .updatedcc_pfile
file unless you have installed a version of Linux with the broken
default `sort` collating sequence since last upgrading.  If so, an
easy way to get the old updatedcc script working is to delete the
entire /var/dcc/build/dcc directory before running updatedcc.
