For some reason, `watchman version` never returns on my computer, and thus `mach build` hangs forever. I have watchman 4.9.0 installed through Homebrew.

The command `watchman --version` works just fine.
This is https://github.com/facebook/watchman/issues/376.

We'll likely want a workaround in configure.
nox: please verify the fix.
