Interest.h:84: error: 'NULL' was not declared in this scope
one can either include the proper headers or remove all NULLs.

Patch to fix building with gcc-4.3 by Martin Väth <vaeth AT
mathematik.uni-wuerzburg DOT de>; bug #215475
i'm speaking of fam-2.7.0-r4
i saw there is a patch for gcc 4.3
but in my case there are still files with undefined NULLs.
well i guess including the proper headers would be better. why are there so many C headers? :)
Last release of app-admin/fam was November 11, 2003. why isn't this phased out?
Isn't app-admin/gamin enough?
I have the same bug using gcc-4.3.1
I need fam instead of gamin because auf maya2008.
Gentoo 2008.0 on HPPA with glibc-2.7-r2:
app-admin/fam-2.7.0-r4 emerges and runs ok on my gentoo 2008.0 on HPPA:
* both gcc-4.2.4 and gcc-4.3.2 tested
* CFLAGS=CXXFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -march=2.0"
* FEATURES="test userpriv -usersandbox"
hope this helps.

The replacement should at least be 0L rather than just 0, but I would ask for Treecleaners to consider killing this off.
While fam probably supports some non-Linux non-FreeBSD systems better than gamin, it cannot be worse, and gamin is actually being developed, thus..
We already went through all this on bug 197757.
If someone wants to pursue phasing out fam, then they need to check out everything that depends on virtual/fam, etc.
Until then, this bug is pretty stalled. Especially with comment #4 and comment #8 contradicting eachother. I don't have a preference either way, really so...up for vote (again).

Since at least one person needs fam, I vote for fix over removal.
