Wmforecast is a weather dockapp for Window Maker. It displays the current      
temperature and an icon representing the current conditions.                   
A balloon tooltip displays forecast information.                               
The weather information comes from the Yahoo Weather API.

patch with some corrections of initial version

Hi Igor,

Many thanks for this nice little new port!

After I investigated a bit in some test, I suggest an updated patch (see attachment area) with the following changes:

- Removing [SPACE] before the TAB in lines 4,5,6, and 7
- Adding USES=pkgconfig
- Adding OPTION NLS for users, who have no need
  to build with gettext
- Remove PORT_OPTIONS=MGEOCLUE, not used for anything
- Add GEOCLUE_CONFIGURE_WITH=geoclue. Otherwise the port
  uses geoclue, if installed, even when unselected.
- Reorder some vars in Makefile, as suggested by
  portclippy (from ports-mgmt/portfmt)
- Add Desktop files to pkg-plist

If you agree with my changes, could you please give approval to the patch (= changing the field in attachment area right to the patch from '?' to '+')?

Hello Rainer,

Thank you very much for your corrections! Last time I ported apps about 10 years ago, much has changed since that time. I guess I have to learn new things.

This is the only WM dock app, that actually works for me. Other weather dock apps from ports don't.

FYI: I just opened a review on Phabricator [1], to get approval from my mentors ;)

I am successfully running misc/wmweather+ for years now. It needs a configuration file 'EDDV.conf' under ~/.wmweather+, in my case with the following contents:

email xxxx@xxxx.xx
station EDDV
location xx'xx'xxN xx'xx'xxE
