Version 1.3.81 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.81 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with
    improve SMTP status messages from dccm and dccifd
    improve dbclean handling of less frequent spam
    do something like `dbclean -F` on systems that lack mmap(MAP_NOSYNC).
	This should help recent versions of Linux that thrash themselves
	much as Solaris always has.
    perhaps fix the "Deadlock situation detected/avoided" messages long
	but infrequently seen on Solaris.
    fix a bug reported by Edward Toton in the mechanism that works around a
	missing cron-dccd cron job.
    fix problem in cron-dccd reported by Dean Maluski when a greylist server
	is running but no DCC server.

/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.
