Just add the text "-linotify" to the LD_FLAGS variable defined
in the Makefile. It's /usr/ports/x11-wm/windowmaker/Makefile
in line 40. However, the name of the variable is LDFLAGS (no
underscore). I have v 1.171 of this file here, port version is
0.95.2 rev. 4 -- just for reference.

Original line:

	LDFLAGS+=       -L${LOCALBASE}/lib

To be changed into:

	LDFLAGS+=       -L${LOCALBASE}/lib -linotify

Then try to build WindowMaker again.
