But given the fact that you use tcpserver (you do, right?), you can just 
alter the tcpserver commandline.

I did that to make bitlbee run from tcpserver too:
/usr/pkg/bin/tcpserver -v -R -u 1021 -g 1004 0 7001 /usr/pkg/sbin/bitlbee

7001 being the port to listen on. It's kinda the same as making my qmail 
run on 42 and 25 both (using firewall software).
