Note in the changelog:

lighttpd (optional) dependencies on libev and on FAM are deprecated.
lighttpd event loop and file monitoring use native OS interfaces
except on obscure platforms. FAM and gamin appear to be abandoned.
Package maintainers on Linux and *BSD:
please remove —with-libev and —with-fam from package builds
lighttpd uses epoll() on Linux, kqueue() on *BSD for event notification.
lighttpd uses inotify() on Linux, kqueue() on *BSD for file monitoring.
