[FWTools] ogr connection to postgis problems

I am trying to test a connection to a postgis db  using ogrinfo and am
having difficulties.  I am running the command on the same server that
hosts the postgis db.  I checked the pg_hba.config file to see if it
allows local connections and everything looks OK but I still get
"Failure" when connecting with ogr.

Am I missing something?

ogrinfo -ro PG:'host=server34 dbname=earth user=bob password=suruncle'



# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only
local   all         all                               trust
# IPv4 local connections:
host    all         all          trust
# IPv6 local connections:
host    all         all         ::1/128               trust

host    all         all password
