I just played like 3 games as Janna, the last one I ended up making stark's, then I started wondring, why no janna full support build features it?
I ran into this comment

Bad items you recommend:
Zeke's Harbinger. Just a bad item unless you got a really ****py team comp. Like 4DPSers or something >.>

so basically we had uberfed enemies since our solo top jax fed 5 kills to singed in the 1st 13 minutes bot lane was equally unkilling, mid was good farmed as they had some ganks on jungler
basically we were down by about 12 kills 3 towers and 1 inhib.
Anyway we turned the **** around, and I had to get my 6th item, was thinking about GA, then my duo buddy asked for stark's
We had kog-WW-jax-brand and my jannaafter starks in 1 fight no one died and our push was amazing.

So, why would you consider starks a bad last janna item? afterall it only has good starts and this teamcomp had better benefits from it than a will of the ancients, since not only gave them healings but also made em push faster. I don't really get all the hate for starks.

For all you questions about jungling

Stark's isn't a good item overall.

It's really situational and the life steal it gives to Janna is just stupid useless.
She's also counter-AoE and pushes everyone away so the aura doesn't work so well.

Personally, I really love Stark. Good lifesteal/AS/health regen auran, plus the reason why i love this item so much, - 20 armor to everyone nearby. But, as Luigignaf said, it's not that great on Janna, since you push enemies away with your ulti, making the -20 armor useless because you push enemies outside your ulti.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

Situational items are situational.

Might as well just build 5 Infinity Edges.

It all depends on your team, a good support will buy Stark's when playing along a lot of AS based characters ^^

I play Janna myself too, whenever it's need I will buy it.

But as said by DuffTime, it all depends on the situation ;)

Stark's Fervior is good for DPS teams which aren't rare nowadays.

DPS jungler, DPS Carry, DPS solo - Very possible, and 3 are enough to warrant it on the Support champion.
Grants really good pushing strength too.

But only if there isn't a better item for the team.

I play a looooot of Janna. I have bought Stark's a fair amount.

It is good when your team is mostly physical (like Jun mentioned), and you are doing well (or at least not doing poorly).

I also get it if my carry is steamrolling, just lets them keep steamrolling harder. Again, in this situation your team is doing well.

Basically, don't buy it if you need survivability (you're getting dived, your team isn't doing well, etc). Buy it if you're doing ok or well and it strongly benefits your team comp.

I will often buy it after Aegis of the Legion, boots, gold gen items. You don't even have to wait for your last items. Janna is not item dependent at all.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

I generally find in most cases WotA would be a superior buy on most supports.

Starks has it's place though.
