Not offering a solution but a bit of an explanation perhaps...
"If you do not supply any -r options, rblsmtpd tries an RBL source of rbl.maps.vix.com. This will be changed in subsequent versions."
So checking the last released version: /ucspi-tcp-0.88# grep -hn maps.vix.com rblsmtpd.c 193: if (flagwantdefaultrbl) rbl("rbl.maps.vix.com");
Looks like that could be a cause of some of your pain...
Not everyone runs rblsmptd on their mailserver, but I know lots of large mail servers that run rblsmptd (qmail).
The fact that the option is the default without being explicit means that at least some folks don't even know maps.vix.com zones are no longer present and the current failure case is not impacting them.
