I would get rid of the deinstall target completely.

You should add the following to shutdown the quoted daemon in the
pkg-plist on deinstall:

@unexec %D/etc/rc.d/quoted.sh stop 2>/dev/null || true

If your script is compatible with the rc_NG system, then the stop
should be a forcestop.

Also, if your script fails to remove the *.pid file you may need to
fix it, or convert it to the rc_NG format for rc.d scripts.
