This is an example from /usr/ports/x11/xsel-conrad/Makefile:

    LICENSE=        xsel-conrad
    LICENSE_NAME=   xsel-conrad license
    LICENSE_PERMS=  auto-accept dist-mirror dist-sell pkg-mirror pkg-sell

I'm not sure it's perfect port maintainer Makefile practice, but it
works, and it's a lot better than no license information at all in my
opinion.  I'd suggest checking that Makefile to see where in the Makefile
to put it.

. . . and if anyone who is more knowledgeable about this stuff than I am
sees something wrong with that Makefile, please let me know.
