[snipped a lot]
On the off chance that someone hasn't helped you already (or you haven't
yet found the answer):
The way I got past this was to add the following line to /etc/make.conf:
Next, run 'pkgdb -F'. When it prompts with the stale dependency
message, set the dependency to your installed fam package. (I cheat and
just use fam<TAB> and let the completion catch it for me. Be sure to
tell it to replace All so you don't get prompted again.
The /etc/make.conf line will keep you from getting into that pickle again.
Don't be too nervous about replacing this dependency because gamin
supports a subset of fam's features, so you won't lose anything.
