I have libfam0 installed, but not fam or portmap, for just this reason.
libfam0 only recommends fam, so I think you should be okay if you run:
apt-get remove portmap
This will probably remove portmap and fam. KDE should still work. You might
also like to install the 'harden' package. (see apt-cache show harden).
