I think libfam0c102 only Recommends fam so that programs can link against the 
library rather than dlopen it yet not require fam to be installed.  I also 
removed fam, and now konqueror doesn't always update directories / file icon 
previews when changes occur (though sometimes it does), so libfam at least 
doesn't work as well without the daemon installed.
