Using MYADDR as an argument in ppp.linkup

I'm having trouble getting ddclient (from /usr/ports/net/ddclient)
working on my machine.
When a user-ppp connection is created, I want to connect to a dynamic
DNS server (hn.org) and update my address.
I've added the following line to /etc/ppp.linkup, with no luck:
!bg /usr/local/sbin/ddclient -daemon=0 -syslog -use=ip ip=MYADDR
I had expected MYADDR to be substituted with my IP address because
You may want to execute a script after connecting. This script can
do nice things such as kick off "sendmail -q", "popclient my.isp"
and "slurp -d news". It can be passed MYADDR, HISADDR and INTERFACE
as arguments too - useful for informing a DNS of your assigned IP.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
