I don't have the samba configure script to hand but if it's a typical
GNU configure script, you should be able to specify something like
'--without-fam' to stop samba looking for FAM.  This would mean
tweaking the FreeBSD Makefile but that's a lot easier than remembering
to deinstall/reinstall various ports.
