I'm not sure why you think gamin/fam == GNOME. libgamin is a libfam reimplementation used for file change notifications (in glib among other things). I did recently change the default, not sure how pkgsrc manages that. One thing I suppose you could do is maybe alter the logic in mk/ to accept either libgamin or fam, as the former is supposed to be source and binary compatible with the latter, at least for a subset of functionality.
