tomcat broken for FreeBSD 4?

jakarta-tomcat-5.0.30_3 does not start anymore under FreeBSD 

/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat5.0/logs/stderr.log sais:
daemon: illegal option -- p
usage: daemon [-cf] command arguments ...

Indeed "man daemon" shows that there is no -p option in contrary to 
FreeBSD 6.1.

But the tomcat start script makes use of this option 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ on line 119:

flags="-p ${pidfile} ${java_command} start ${tomcat50_flags} ${log_args}"

Is tomcat broken for FreeBSD 4?

I couldn't find any hint neither on the web nor in /usr/port/UPDATING 
and even not in the ports changes!

I'd really appreciate any hint!
