> Here is the consistent error message:

fam patches work ok on [nf]bsd, but they break this package for Linux. Their
author already did great job with porting this package to BSDs, but pkgsrc
fam needs some tweaks (esp. configure script) to also cooperate with Linux.

See PR pkg/24578.

(and a note for reed@ - no, I haven't emailed fam maints yet, I have to
check a few things to make sure it's worth to bug them)
