You have:

: ${daily_sa_compile="YES"}

sa-compile is installed by the SA port, but it requires devel/re2c,
which is an optional dependency. With a standard install your script
will update the rules, the compile will unconditionally fail, and so
spamd won't get restarted.

You could detect the re2c port, but I think it would be better to turn
it off by default

I'd also suggest running sa-compile with nice  by default.
