Version 1.3.74 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.74 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The overall effect of recent changes on DCC servers that do not receive
more than a few 100K requests/day is to reduce the size of the database
by 10-25%.  This is significant for systems with less than 6 GByte of
RAM and that do not handle millions of requests per day.

The CHANGES file starts with
    Repair rate limiting of dccd system log messages.
    Another fix for detecting duplicate bulk mail reports.

/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.
