Thank you!
Just a couple of notes:
1). I think that our port has a redundant patch for default KDirWatch method
selection - KDE code already has FreeBSD ifdef at that place;
2). maybe we could change the default method to FAM or change default polling
interval to something greater or, at least, prominently notify users -
rescanning all directories every 0.5 seconds creates noticeable CPU load.

OK, thanks again!
