This thread is slightly out of date but is full of useful stuff.
Anyone wanting to try out Window Maker on Arch will find these packages useful.
I have not tried out the "menumaker" package. Instead I brought my main menu up to date with this tip from the WM home site. It is worth the time reading the "Doc's" at the site.
$ wmgenmenu > $HOME/GNUstep/Defaults/WMRootMenu
Hundreds of themes with funky wallpapers can be found here
There are some dock apps at the AUR but not all of them run. There are loads and loads of dock apps to be found on the web. Do not be put of by the fact that development on some of them stopped decades ago. I managed to get a 1999 dock app to run though I was told that I really should have made an Arch package out of it first. With a bit of reading up and some minor twiddling I recon most reasonably experienced linux users would be able to find heaps of dock apps and get them running on Arch.
From the wiki
In late June 2008 a post on the project's website said active development would resume, noting, "...we are working very hard to revitalize Window Maker's presence on X Window (and perhaps beyond) desktops... We expect to once again provide the de-facto minimalist yet extremely functional window manager to the world." There have been no further posts since then, although development continues on the mailing list as of April 2011. On 29th January 2012, Window Maker 0.95.1 was released, making it the first official release in almost seven years.
To avoid litigation take note
Anyone playing with Pi's might find this window manager a perfect fit both for its low use of resources and its ease of customisation using simple coding.
I am enjoying playing with Window Maker and can heartily recommend it to folk.
