Inotify is used to monitor changes on the file system. There are also
several alternatives: dnotify (old linux kernels), gamin (aka FAM, an
old userspace daemon originated from gnome, I don't know if it's
available on FreeBSD), and stat(2) as a generic fallback. So if you
haven't enabled any of WHITH_INOTIFY, WHITH_INOTIFY or WITH_GAMIN kde
will periodically stat files it monitors which will lead for a bit
larger overhead...
