not really what I'm looking for.  I gave my friends access to my
FreeBSD server and I want to let them start for example Apache and/or
MySQL on higher ports running as their own user.

Starting something at boot is easy enough. The user can just add a line like this to his/her crontab:

@reboot /path/to/command

At shutdown is not possible via cron though.
