Bug#844192: wmaker: Missing sensible menues

Package: wmaker
Version: 0.95.7-6+b1
Severity: normal

I'm using windowmaker for ~10 years. Over the years the menu entries
in windowmaker have become better, on stable they are really usefull.
They contained the software installed on the system (at least most of
it). IIRC there was an dedicated Debian entry where I could find most
necessary stuff.

Unfortunately my machine died a while back and I set up a new one
running testing. (retrieving my config from the backup)

Now the menues are/appear to be static. They contain software not 
installed (e.g. emacs) and misses lots of software. This makes the 
menu rather useless.

Could you restore the useful menu system/entries from stable?
