I think you need to type:
(setf lkb::*lexdb-params* ' ((:dbname "lil") (:user "lexdb")))

i.e. you need to use setf to set the value, you need to quote the lisp list,
and each parameter value pair has to be a list.

you should probably also set the type
 (setf lkb::*lexdb-params* ' ((:dbname "lil") (:user "lexdb") (:type

Jacy uses the somewhat simpler single user mode, there is some documentation
in  http://wiki.delph-in.net/moin/JacyLexDb.

(:type :single-user)

Does anyone have any insight on how to get the settings right?

I hope that this helps.
