Version 1.3.143 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.XX of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/dcc-tree/CHANGES and
http://www.rhyolite.com/dcc/dcc-tree/CHANGES and
starts with

    Fix `dccifd -V` broken in 1.3.142 reported by Chris Burton.
    Fix "incompatible whitelist" SMTP bug in dccifd introduced in 1.3.139.
    Deal with default -mstructure-size-boundary=8 in FreeBSD on ARM as
	suggested by Ronald Klop.  However, intermittent failures of
	`cdcc "id 1; stats"` on FreeBSD 9.0-STABLE on a system with a
	"Feroceon 88FR131 rev 1 (Marvell core)" seem to be caused by broken
	consistency between write() and mmap().  That suggests that while
	the DCC client software should generally work, the DCC server will
	occassionally fail mysteriously.

/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.
