short answer:
fam won't go into woody as long as the build errors of gcc-3.0 on arm and
m68k aren't fixed.

long answer:
fam was compiled with a recent libstdc++3-dev on hppa so you got a
dependency on libstdc++3 (>= 1:3.0.3-0pre011215). This dependency can't be
fulfilled inside woody at the moment. The way testing works is that fam
won't get into woody until a recent enough libstdc++3 is in testing. It
doesn't matter whether the problems that keep the new libstdc++3 from
entering testing are build problems on other architectures, RC bugs in any
package built from the gcc-3.0 source package or dependency problems that
arise when the binary packages from gcc-3.0 enter testing.
