There's the problem.  The line you want to use, from procmail(1):

"|IFS=' '&&p=/usr/bin/procmail&&test -f $p&&exec $p -Yf-||exit 75 #YOUR_USERNAME"

The procmail FAQ has something slightly different:

"|IFS=' '&&p=/usr/local/bin/procmail&&test -f $p&&exec $p -f-||exit 75#whatever"

(Where "whatever" is your username.)
