That's weird. Here's my qpopper one, that works. Maybe you can find what's 
causing the errors for you:
#!/bin/sh
# PROVIDE: qpopper
# REQUIRE: DAEMON

. /etc/rc.subr

name="qpopper"
rcvar=`set_rcvar`
load_rc_config $name

qpopper_config=${qpopper_config:-"/usr/local/etc/qpopper.config"}
qpopper_host=${qpopper_host:-"127.0.0.1"}
qpopper_port=${qpopper_port:-"110"}

command="/usr/local/libexec/${name}"
command_args="-f ${qpopper_config} ${qpopper_host}:${qpopper_port}"
required_files=${qpopper_config}

run_rc_command "$1"
