Patch for Makefie.in

I use Slackware with KDE.

After successfully compiling from source and installing. Then tried to start
Claws Mail from my Quicklaunch icon it failed, missing "claws-mail.desktop".
The menu option was also missing. 

Perhaps this was intentional, perhaps not. Noted in change log "Remove
appdata." Is claws-mail.desktop part of "appdata"? I'm thinking it's not, of
course I could be wrong. The file is present in the root tree of the source. 

At any rate I created a patch for Makefile.am and Makefile.in correct this
possible oversight. Seems to work alright. My Quicklaunch icon works as
expected and the menu item is back.
