Neither polkitd nor dbus-daemon (in system mode) are running. Kill off
the hald process, then run /usr/local/etc/rc.d/dbus start. You should
see a dbus-daemon process running with a --system argument. If not,
not, you may have a problem with dbus. You can try
running /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --system --nofork and see if you get
any errors.

If dbus-daemon starts up correctly, start up polkitd
with /usr/local/etc/rc.d/polkitd start. If that works, then start hald.
When everything is up, you should be able to run lshal, and actually see
a device list.
