Version 1.3.62 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.62 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with
    Let "option threshold type,val" lines in whiteclnt file accept "all"
	and "cmn" for "type" as with `dccproc -c` and `dccm -t` and `dccifd -t`.
    Use yet another scheme in updatedcc to detect download failures that
	won't force unneeded downloads.
    Fix dccifd man page about the location of the socket as suggested by
	Carl Byington.
    Fix several rare or potential bugs related to broken TCP connections with
	DCC flooding including one that has caused a core dump.

/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.
