This is from the INSTALL file that comes with SpamAssassin:

- DCC    http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/

     DCC (Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse) is a system similar to Razor.
     It supports fuzzy checksums and therefore detects some more spams than
     Razor does at the moment.

     To install it, download
     http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/source/dcc-dccproc.tar.Z and
     perform the following steps:

        # tar xfvz dcc-dccproc.tar.Z
        # cd dcc-dccproc-X.X.X
        # ./configure && make && make install
        # cdcc 'info'

     The last command will give some output. One line of it should contain
     something like:

         dcc.rhyolite.com,-         RTT+0 ms    anon

     Note that MIMEDefang users may need to set the 'dcc_path'
     configuration setting, since MIMEDefang does not set a PATH by

In /opt/MailScanner/etc/spam.assassin.prefs.conf I have:

#score DCC_CHECK 0.0
dcc_path /usr/local/bin/dccproc

As simple as that. You don't have to care about anything if you follow
the above, SpamAssassin will know how to use it. ;)
