Patch adding a package for Chocolate Doom, which I felt was appropriate
as both Odamex and GZDoom are packaged in Guix.

Regards,

Hey Jakob!  Your patch looks good in general, though I haven't had a
chance to try building and running it yet.  Maybe just a couple of
things:

 - I think it would be "New variable" rather than "New variables" in the
   commit message.  Not that this is a big deal, and I could fix it.
 - It would be good to test if it can run with freedoom (a libre doom
   content replacement for doom that's functionaly similar).  My guess
   is that the one change would need to be adjusting where the default
   searched WAD path is.  freedoom and gzdoom both add a reference to
   /share/games/doom so I'm guessing that's how it's found.  However
   I'm not positive about that.

Looking good though in general!

If I update the patch to address your second point, I can change it.
Otherwise, if you'd be willing to fix it when merging, that'd be great.

GZDoom adds a reference to /share/games/doom because it bundles a .pk3
file containing some port-specific things which ends up in the store,
and my understanding is that Freedoom updates DOOMWADDIR and DOOMWADPATH
to point to where the wads are in the profile, so I don't think patching
the search paths is necessary.

Thanks for reviewing this!

Jakob
