We need to make a choice. Patch all source to be compatible to use one 
or the other. Or patch fam so it can provide what pcmanfm needs. Or make 
them use different names (and maybe symbols) so fam and libgamin can be 
installed simultaneously.

One workaround: deinstall fam and anything that uses it. Install 
libgamin. Set FAM_DEFAULT=gamin in your mk.conf. Reinstall and hope 
nothing requires fam. Configure libgamin.

I know we had talked about this before. This is the Ubuntu system? If 
so, maybe some workarounds: remove the docbook, xsltproc, catalogs, and 
related from the base Ubuntu system. Maybe manually run the above 
command with strace to see what file location it trying to open and move 
that file or use strace to try to figure out why it is using the wrong 
catalog. I will try to see if I can reproduce this on Debian....
