The inotify extension depends on some "recent" flags in <sys/inotify.h>,
that not all Linux systems might have.

A failure to build inotify shouldn't prevent the build of Mercurial
itself to succeed.

To that end, I propose to mark the 'inotify' extension as being optional.
The following patch does in a way very similar to how distutils itself 
does it in py3k.
