Jan Kiszka reported high polling frequency when using -watch.

It turns out OS-specific packages for Filesys::Notify::Simple do
not pull in interfaces to use kqueue or inotify, which are
required to perform power-efficient event-based wakeups on
Maildir writes.

Fix the name of the Filesys::Notify::Simple for FreeBSD while
we're at it.
