The /etc/mail/milter-spamc.cf is NOT a shell script. Its just a text 
file containing options. So you simply say:

-B spamtrap@rohrer.com -A

And thats it.

This should work.

Have you looked in the maillog for any error messages from when the 
milter starts? It might be file ownership permissions preventing the 
process from reading the file. It the milter-spamc started as root or a 
different user? With the new version, start it as root and it will 
change process owner after reading the options and creating the socket 
and pid file in /var/run.

Placing the options in /etc/init.d/milter-spamc also works
