The routes db just sets destinations, not the actual transport specifics.
You merely specify that as	...	 smtp![] 

I think you would need to define a stanza in scheduler.conf:

       command="smtp -p 5678 -s"

I have no idea whether this really works (the man page shows
a -p param, but does not elaborate further...)
