rc.d scripts and REQUIRE part

I am trying to understand how to customize rc.d scripts to get the right
startup sequence for all daemons.

Seems we have (my case havp, but it is also the same problem for example
monit) :

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/havp :

# PROVIDE: havp
# REQUIRE: DAEMON cleanvar

But in my configuration, I need ... clamd to be started before havp. 

I have no garantee that clamd is started before havp.

Is there any hint (I had a look in handbook, but didn't find yet) a way to
add some REQUIRE stuff for a rc script inside, for example /etc/rc.conf ?
