Not all scripts create a pid file is the simple answer.
I didn't see how the isc-dhcpd script or dovecot created a pid, so I assumed it was something that rc.subr took care of.
Your script should create the pid file on start, remove it on stop, and simply cat that file on a status. If you want help with your script, post it, and I'm sure one of us will give you a hand.
Again, I thought the rc.subr functions took care of all that for you (unless you wanted something special from those commands). I've posted the script (changed quite a lot from vendor supplied) at: http://www.pastebin.ca/730238 If you (or anyone) were to suggest changes, I would very much appreciate the reasons why, so I can learn.
