Hello maintainers of a fortune-port,

Please note the commit to HEAD of bin/36867: [patch] games/fortune:
add FORTUNE_PATH env var, so ports of fortunes can work sanely.

While it might not influence your port directly, you might want to
add some information to the pkg-message or pkg-descr of the port
to alert people about the existence of the FORTUNE_PATH variable.
