Also, I forgot to mention that when I'm faced with similar rc.d
problems, I invoke the script with "sh -x" like so:

sh -x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/viewvc start

That prints all of the shell variable debug information, echoes
commands, etc.  I would be interested in seeing that output if you can
post it to pastebin.

I'm not sure my previous suggestion will help anyway, and it looks like
your $command variable is trashed somewhere while the script executes.
