It's been over 7 years since the last upstream update and gamin provides
nearly all the functions without requiring a daemon and it uses inotify.

As for NFS support, gamin monitors local events so it won't affect users
having the home on NFS [1].

I think we shouldn't support dead software and replace fam with gamin.
