There is no distinfo file for wm/ethemes
I believe this was a deliberate choice (perhaps inherited
from wmthemes or some other themes) made because the theme
files changed frequently without updating the file names.
The distfiles on the master site were last updated more than
3 years ago, what's more, their file names all contain their
last modification data, to minute accuracy - so the chances
of a file's content being changed now without a name change
seems vanishingly small.
Not having a distinfo file means that corrupted downloads can't
easily be detected - there really needs to be a very strong reason
to ignore this, and here, that reason doesn't seem to exist.
Add a distinfo file
