If you didn't use the port, then it really should have used poll. In
1.0rc1 version it could have used kqueue, but I don't see why it would
happen with newer rcs.
Notify's description is wrong though. It uses inotify -> kqueue ->
dnotify -> none ordering by default.

I think most of the parts that can be compiled off don't take all that
much space in the config file. Here's the config file split that I was
thinking about, probably missing some of the latest changes:
The dovecot-example.conf should also contain some include-directives for
the other files.
