According to the guys on IRC, *bsd puts the files in
/usr/local/pgsql/data; if not do a "find" for the files to figure out
where they are. Once you find them, you'll need to set tcpip_sockets =
true and you'll need to add a line like:
host	all		all	<zope box ip>	trust
to your pg_hba.conf

you'll need to do a pg_ctl reload once you make the changes.
