    v150 v151  
    158158MacPorts has the ability to automatically generate startup items for the current platform. For Mac OS X, these are plist files for launchd which will be installed as `/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.*.plist`. The current code would need a little care and could make use of options which have been added in recent releases of launchd.

     161 * Not using daemondo if the daemon works fine under launchd without it

     163 * Support for LaunchAgents as well as LaunchDaemons
     164 * Installing plists in ~/Library for non-root installs if the user wants
