Indeed this is so.  I just upgraded from dcc-1.3.122 (32 bit) to
dcc-1.3.125 (64 bit) on my test server.  It proceeded like any other
upgrade.  I did get one error on starting dccm:

    May 12 08:46:35 setup01 dccm[27240]: [ID 349477 mail.error] /usr/local/dcc/map is not a DCC map file; fatal error

I've seen that problem before.  Moving it aside and recreating it with:

    # su daemon -c ksh
    # cdcc "load map.txt"

fixed the problem.  The whole system is running nicely now.
