Config problem: Service #0 is missing name

Okay. So following up on the problems I was discussing weeks ago, I have hand-patched dovecot to work around problems that I believe may be in libc and not dovecot.
Trying to get the properly built and installed dovecot-2.2.35, however, is giving me an error I haven’t seen before. I presume that something got munged while I was hand-configuring and installing/uninstalling/reinstalling the port in recent weeks.
Running on a FreeBSD 11-stable machine, when I run “service dovecot start”, it tells me:
% sudo service dovecot start
Fatal: Error reading configuration: Invalid settings: Service #0 is missing name
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/dovecot: WARNING: failed to start dovecot
Surprisingly, googling for “Service #0 is missing name” didn’t yield a suggestion. My config is the same as it had been previously, I believe. Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong here?
