net-im/prosody: fix failure when using libevent

* Restore libevent support by removing _POSIX_C_SOURCE defines.
* Remove redundant compiler requirements, defaults are fine.


  * portlint: OK (1 warning regarding the use of /var/db)
  * testport: OK (poudriere: 11.4-i386, 11.4-amd64, 12.2-i386,
                  12.2-amd64, 13.0-amd64, 13.0-arm64)

Prosody supports libevent for better performance on busy servers, but
setting "use_libevent = true" makes Prosody fail immediately on startup.

On FreeBSD Prosody needs a workaround for daemonizing with libevent
enabled. This workaround is rendered useless by the _POSIX_C_SOURCE
defines which disable __BSD_VISIBLE and the required rfork() flag.

Actually there's no need for the _POSIX_C_SOURCE defines on FreeBSD
and by simply removing them the libevent feature is working again.
