So the default that is comment out is 'false' which has to be set to

I assume you restarted postgresql after this change. After restart what
do you get from a 'ps aux' command for user postgres?

You did do a 'createuser -P' command as user postgres to create the
database user freeside as per the docs? 

Does the database freeside exist? (pgsql freeside)

Did you have any problems with the 'make create-database' command? If so
I would double check to make sure DBI and such are working correctly.
