I had a port for 1.2.5 made at one point, but was not happy with it.
I am slightly disappointed with the direction that icewm development
is taking, and since I am personally not going to upgrade to the
latest versions, it is a good thing that you are willing to take over
the maintaining of icewm port.

I don't think it's worth the effort to introduce flavors. Just choose
some reasonable defaults and make sure they work. I would suggest
adding  '--enable-shape' and '--enable-shaped-decorations' options
to configure, since they seem to be stable enough and many publicly
available themes (such as axxrom-1.3 for example) depend on them.

No need for wget - "ftp http://libpcap.net/icewm.tar.gz"; works fine :).

Currently your port does not install the .html doc files and built-in
help browser fails. I've attached three patches (two new, one
modified) and updated PLIST to fix that.
