Some extra distributions like fink still make leafnode a
StartupItem, eg. because it's easier to turn off. However, that
being said, the following setup works fine for me:

$ cat /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.leafnode.plist
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
<plist version="1.0">

<!--$Id: org.leafnode.plist,v 9581788c5b00 2007-08-22 14:20 +0200 blacktrash $-->



$ sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.leafnode.plist
$ sudo launchctl start org.leafnode

To stop:

$ sudo launchctl stop org.leafnode
$ sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.leafnode.plist

You might want to keep a backup of org.leafnode.plist somewhere
in case system updates accidentially fiddle with it.
