Ye Old Computer
When you have either fam/gamin installed, and then build the net/samba3 but don't select FAM_SUPPORT from the OPTIONS menu, the port builds with FAM_SUPPORT anyways.

The reason for this is that the Samba3 configure script automatically detectes the fam/gamin library and enables support for FAM.  The configure script doesn't have an option to disable this behavior.
On a system without fam/gamin installed run:


then install either fam/gamin and run:


You'll see that FAM has been added to the list of LIB_DEPENDS.
Add a notice in pre-everything advising that FAM_SUPPORT has been forced.
