I'm not aware of a way to set a waiting time in a plist.

I believe you can set dependencies on some things, like indicating that a plist requires the network be up, or that it should be restarted if the network connection changes?

One reason why a launchd plist might not work at startup is if your ports are actually installed on a second volume, not on the startup disk. Is that the case?
