I would like to program an arduino leonardo board with atmega32u4 on win8.1 x64. I have the latest AVRdude. I installed the necessary drivers, after reset it can be enter programming mode, and I can program with arduino studio. But now, the avrude gives this:

    C:\>avrdude -carduino -P COM5 -n -p m32u4 -b19200 -v

avrdude: Version 6.1-svn-20131205, compiled on Dec  5 2013 at 17:34:22

         System wide configuration file is "c:\GNU_GCC_ARM\bin\avrdude.conf"

         Using Port                    : COM5
         Using Programmer              : arduino
         Overriding Baud Rate          : 19200

avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 9 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x3f
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 10 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x3f

avrdude done.  Thank you.

I tried also with 57600 baud. Any idea? Thanks.

You're specifying the wrong bootloader protocol via -carduino. The Arduino bootloader is for boards using the Diecimila bootloader. The Leonardo uses the "AVR109" bootloader - named after the Atmel Application Note which describes its protocol.

Try this command on for size:

avrdude -cavr109 -P COM5 -n -p m32u4 -b57600 -v

Don't forget to press the reset button (or open and close COM5 at 1200 baud) first to run the bootloader.
