Version 1.3.92 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.92 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with
    Improve the hash function used in the DCC server database.
    Replace -Bno-envelope for dccm, dccproc, and dccifd with
	-Bno-client and -Bno-mail_host for Tony Del Porto.  It seems that
	Spamhaus' PBL should generally not be applied to SMTP envelope
	Mail_From domain names to avoid rejecting mail received through an
	ISP smart-host but with sender domain name hosted on a dynamically
	assigned IP address.  The now undocumented -Bno-envelope implies
	-Bno-client and -Bno-mail_host.
    Fix the @configsuffix@ mechanism in homedir/Makefile.in as suggested
	by Craig Green.
    Switch to -lpthread threads on FreeBSD starting with 6.2 because of
	recent problems with libc_r threads.
    Dccproc should not require a "option DNSBL-on" line in /var/dcc/whiteclnt
	to pay attention to DNSBL hits.  The -B settings on the dccproc
	command line are sufficient to show that the user wants DNSBL checking.
    Fix bug in compression of DCC Reputation 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.
