Patch to make it build again

At the moment, net/liferea hangs during the build because WebKit tries to connect to an X server/Wayland/Broadway. During the build, there is no graphical environment. Instead of failing, WebKit just waits. Setting the environment variable WEBKIT_DISABLE_COMPOSITING_MODE=1 makes WebKit initialize without any graphics environment. The port build successfully with this setting.

Quick fix found here: https://github.com/lwindolf/liferea/issues/767

Seems like a potentially better solution than bug #243677 ;-)

  net/liferea: unbreak build

  liferea tries to initialize it's graphics backend even when being run
  for gobject introspection only - and that causes webkit to crash or
  hang when there is no X server or similar available (e.g. during package
  build in poudriere). This environment variable makes webkit survive
  the package build.

If only I had known that there was such an simple solution...

committed as ports r524609 - thank you very much.
