Hello Nick,

OK thanks. I can't access my server right now, will be unable to until 
around 7pm tonight, but I know I can connect successfully using psql with 
a command such as:

# psql freemap

For example, when I put the OSM data into the database I did something 

# psql freemap < planet-070228.sql

and that worked.

I guess it's more of a problem with how I've specified the connection in 
the Mapnik XML file. Maybe it should be "" not "localhost"?
