Adding additional arguments to daemondo

I have dhcpd running on a iMac that is on a wireless network (no  
wired) and when the system boots, because the wireless network is on  
yet, DHCP starts from launchd, but immediately fails:

Not configured to listen on any interfaces!

If you did not get this software from, please
get the latest from and install that before
requesting help.

I was able to get it to work by adding


to /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.dhcpd.plist so when the  
wireless network comes up, it restarts and dhcpd works, but there  
doesn't appear to be a way to do this in looking through  
portstartupitem.tcl.  If there's a way to append or prepend to args,  
then this could be added.

Any suggestions?
