I have chown the freeswitch directory to my user imyrvold, therefore

Do you run freeswitch as root, as you put it in /System/library/
LaunchDaemons? That directory should be reserved anyway for Apple's
A better idea would be to put it in /Library/LaunchDaemons if you run
it as root (but you should in my opinion run it as a normal user, as I
have (almost) always done).
