Description Joe Marcus Clarke freebsd_committer 2006-01-31 06:50:02 UTC
After the latest round of bsd.port.mk patches, the default FAM system was
changed from fam to gamin.  Gamin is a drop-in replacement for many (but not
all) of fam's features.  There are a few ports that have a problem when using
gamin.  Additionally, gamin and fam conflict, and if a user had fam
installed already, portupgrade would complain loudly when upgrading
dependent ports.

Fix: The attached patch switches all ports that use FAM from static FAM
dependencies to USE_FAM.  I have also set them all to want fam as their
FAM system provider.  This should prevent POLA violations as I have not
tested these ports with gamin.

The bsd.port.mk portion detects if gamin or fam is already installed,
and smartly sets the user-desired FAM system provider internally.

I leave it up to portmgr consensus if the default FAM system should be
changed back to fam in light of these patches.
