Did you restart zope after changing the access file?
Did you (re)start zope after setting it the first time with zopectl?

I haven't done a fresh install in a long time, so I don't know if
there are any gotchas with that.  I'd also try hitting ZServer
directly (default is http://localhost:9673/) and only attempt adding
PCGI into the mix after that works.  I actually have zope set up with
mod_proxy, instead of pcgi, because pcgi wasn't doing what I wanted it
to.  It kinda seems simpler that way.
