Yes, I just rebooted my test server and it reverted to building the
hash files in DCC's home directory, even though dcc_conf specified:

    DBCLEAN_ARGS='-H /var/run/dcc'

`dccd' started dbclean like this:

    /usr/local/dcc/libexec/dbclean -Pq4SRbad -i NNNN

I see that dccd can take a `-f' or `-F' option, but there's no place
for `-H'.  Can I put this in `-C' if I specify the full path name?
