Since I use csup and have no experience with portsnap I can't speak to it's

If you previously had glib20-2.14.6 installed, you will need to do a 'make
deinstall' prior to 'make reinstall'.

This is wrong somehow. You should be able to make && make deinstall && make
reinstall the glib20 port without it going anywhere else.

Also please note that both the glib20 port *and* the gio-fam-backend both
utilize the same glib20 tarball. It's just you need to build/install the
glib20 (current version == 2.16.5) port first, then follow up by doing the
gio-fam-backend port.

Something is wrong with your setup as I just successfully built the
gio-fam-backend port on my test machine with no difficulties encountered.
