Subject: DCC version 1.3.45/2.3.45 released

Version 1.3.45 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and
http://www.rhyolite.com/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z

Commercial version 2.3.45 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
    Suppress some error messages about broken DCC clients from dccd.
    Fix default start and stop Linux run levels in rcDCC as suggested by
	Herve Eychenne.
    Change start-dccifd to use `kill` instead of `/bin/kill` to accommodate
	Linux systems where /bin/kill does not understand `/bin/kill -9 -$PID`
	as the way to kill a process group.
    `cdcc src` now accepts a pair of IPv4,IPv6 addresses.
    Requests from anonymous DCC clients to the public DCC servers are grouped
	by IPv4 /24 or IPv6 /56 address blocks for inflating the delay.

/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.
