So, once again, I have to update half of my ports in order to add a new port 
to the system, that's happily functioning with the older version(s).

This is not right... I ought to be able to use the older gnome to my heart's 
content, until a particular application begins to /require/ some new features 
of the new gnome.

= gio-fam-backend is a new piece of glib which provides a wrapper around
= FAM to allow applications to monitor file objects using a glib API.

Thanks for the details.
