4.35.11: new to DCC, did I do it right?

I'm a newbie to using DCC, my setup is: MS 4.35.11, SA 3.0.1, perl 5.8.5.
I've been using razor for a while.  I'm wondering if I did DCC correctly.

I built dcc with:

./configure --homedir=/opt/dcc --bindir=/opt/dcc/bin --disable-dccm --with-uid=26

where uid 26 is "mailnull" on my system, and installed it.  I opened up port
6277 udp and tcp in my firewall, just like dns (port 53). I took a look
thru the various files in the dcc homedir, and made minor changes to dcc_conf
and whiteclnt.  Then I stopped mailscanner, set the correct path to dccproc
in etc/spam.assassin.prefs.conf.  Restarted MS, and watched the syslog.
I see "DCC_CHECK 2.17" in syslogging of SpamAssassin information.

Uhhh, is that all there is to using DCC?  Things to look out for?  Gotchas?
Did I miss something, or is it really that simple?
