	There is no distinfo file for wm/wmthemes

	I believe this was a deliberate choice (perhaps inherited
	from ethemes) made because the theme files changed frequently
	without updating the file names.

	Whether true for ethemes or not, this doesn't appear to ever
	have really been the case for wmthemes.   The distfiles on the
	master site were last updated (well one, the other two are
	even older) more than two and a half years ago.   What's more
	they all contain version numbers in their names, so one might
	at least hope that if one does get updated after all this time,
	it would be considered to be a new version.

	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.
	By inspection
	Add a distinfo file to pkgsrc/wm/wmthemes
