I'm confused. If you haven't been able to set up a filesystem backend,  
how did Ingo create a .procmailrc?

VFS is a possible backend for Ingo, and "file" is a possible backend  
for VFS. So, yes, you can use the VFS file backend in Ingo to write  
.procmailrc files directly to the filesystem. But I still didn't  
understand what you issue actually is.
