If you look at $PREFIX/bin/svscanboot, you'll see that it
uses /bin/sh and 2>&1-style stderr redirection, see also
<http://cr.yp.to/daemontools/svscanboot.html>. I am pretty sure that
the documentation for older versions of daemontools that came without
svscanboot used /bin/csh explicitly and |&-style redirection.

Whether readproctitle(8) is useful at all on FreeBSD is another
question. I vaguely remember having read a discussion that it does not
work reliably resp. at all on FreeBSD.
