First thing I would do is check the console. Messages from the  
launchd system usually get sent to system.log. If there's no mention  
there, then you'll have to refer to someone more knowledgeable about  
start-stop-daemon; I don't make use of it myself.

You could also confirm that the "Start" command in /opt/local/etc/ 
LaunchDaemons/org.macports.lighttpd/lighttpd.wrapper is `/opt/local/ 
sbin/lighttpd -f /opt/local/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf` as you  
executed to test. I can't imagine it wouldn't, though.
