Hello Harry,

If you read the FAQ_FreeBSD in the docs sub directory of the distribution,
you'll see that you need to recompile the FreeBSD kernel with support for
SystemV Semaphores, etc. While you're at it you might also want to bump up
the maxusers parameter (I changed mine from 5 to 10), as I found I was
running out of file descriptors with postgresql running with apache.
