The catch 22 is that Courier-Imap attempts to use FAM even when it is 
not configured to do so.  So, I have to have FAM installed.  I could get 
it all working by deinstalling and reinstalling in the right order ... 
until portmanager comes along and upgrades samba sometime in the future.

So, I suppose I will have to find a way to configure gam with samba.
