Re: wm/dwm missing st which is an important part

This is intended: a window manager can be used also without a
particular terminal emulator (I also would expect that probably a lot
of wm/dwm users uses LOCALPATCHES to adjust its config.h and maybe also
adjust the terminal emulator used).
If you would like to install it you can install st-term.

There is no conflict: one can install both devel/st and x11/st-term at
the same time.
