  Okay, I applied the patches, I just had to add a #ifdef USE_INOTIFY/#endif
to server/gam_inotify.c to avoid compilation errors on system without inotify.
It would be good to find a way to detect the availability of inotify.h from
the kernel sources to then activate it.
  Anyway this is in gamin CVS head, let's hope it get tested by more people,
but getting the kernel side ready is IMHO far more difficult for people to
test it.

  thanks !
