Update to devel/libinotify port

Update to commit b2873cf8a94b0574819075a003e33c0405f1b690

   - Now uses autotools to configure

One consequence of switching to autotools is that it is now simple to run the test suite.  FreeBSD has some missing kqueue(2) functionality which means that there will be test failures around:

  - detecting a file being moved into or out of a directory within the
    same filesystem
  - certain modifications to a symbolic link (rather than the
    file it points to.)

The upstream author has some kernel patches to address these:


These are in addition to the already known and documented limitations on detecting file open and close events.

Results of running the testsuite

Note: running the test suite as root will result in an additional test failure

In test "Failures":
    failed: watch id is -1, errno set to EACCES when starting watching a file without read access

Upstream believe this to be a testsuite bug.
