It's off by default at FreeBSD ports, if you don't check it, it simply
doesn't apply the patch. There is no option to enable it, just applied
and it worled fine for me.

Here you can see an example of Docked Application Settings panel
with Shortcut option.

Personally, i don't like this kind of stuff, when I came from fluxbox
to wmaker, one of the stuffs i really liked was don't need to edit
a bunch of config files, I believe the ideal is to change the shortcut
panel at WPrefs to permit you to add custom commands, it would
be a cleaner solution.
