[LDM #FTL-344567]: Automatic LDM startup under Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

Sorry, no.

The example LDM boot-time script 
<http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-6.7.0/basics/configuring.html#boot>
 could probably be used to start the LDM, but I don't know how to integrate 
that with a launch daemon either.

I'll ask around.
