Version 1.3.93 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.93 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with
    Make the default value for the `dccm -j` and `dccifd -j` job limit
	as large as possible.  This makes -j settings unnecessary.
    Dccproc and cdcc time out after about 1 minute when the /var/dcc/map
	file is not unlocked.
    Add "option spam-trap-accept" and "option spam-trap-reject" to
	whiteclnt files.  I think these are the best way to build
	DCC spam traps.

/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.
