Well first off all you have to get them in the database, either
uploading them through the web interface or by adding rows to the
database directly and dropping the files in /home/osm/gpx named
as <id>.gpx.

Then run "ruby script/daemons start" to start the daemon, or just
run "ruby lib/daemons/gpx_import.rb" to have it run in the foreground
in your current window.
