comment Building Snapwm on FreeBSD (Problem of gcc and clang)?
This is what ports are: a set of configure options and if needed patch to files and/or makefile (have a look in /usr/ports/x11-wm/ctwm/files for instance). There is currently no one command way of doing it, as there is no ports for snapwm. You need to do it the hard way: configure/Imake whatever you can and/or modify the makefile to reflect your setup.
