They are there so a user can know if he has the latest version of the
patch. Use pkgtools/pkgdiff for creating them (look at all the installed
programs, they are quite useful).

Add a post-install target in the package's Makefile and install
them there, like
	${INSTALL_DATA_DIR} ${PREFIX}/share/examples/wmclockmon
	${INSTALL_DATA} ${WRKSRC}/foo/bar ${PREFIX}/share/examples/wmclockmon

WRKSRC=		${WRKDIR}/whatever

Also, check out if you plan on creating more
new packages :)
