Yes, I am also using something similar.  Basically it needs to find the external address.  I made my own little php script and put it on a server.  So when ddclient accesses the script is checks the reported external address and echo's that back.  There are other services that do it, of course.

use=web, web=[myowndomain]/whatismyip.php, web-skip='IP Address'
