Actually, neither 0.1.6 (which was current when I first tried) nor 0.1.7

I presume these are the patches to which you're referring?

Now that I have an existing patchset, then it's a different story
entirely. This does affect me as well, so let me see what I can do.
I'm building 0.1.5 with these patches now.

Agreed, considering the circumstances.

Not AFAIK. In fact, gnome-vfs2 just looks for fam.h and libfam, which
could be provided by either FAM or Gamin; I don't think it actually
affects the gamin API either way, just the functionality.

No, but it shouldn't be necessary.
