As someone who has done many of these updates I like this idea a lot.

Do many modules need the check for malloc(0) != NULL? I see it in some
of the libraries (and suspect it's in too many of those), but not
most other modules.
I was going to suggest removing this one, but on review, it's still useful for
setting the PACKAGE_VERSION_* variables, but could have the bits removed for
--with-release-version handling (those are a holdover from the days
when we were going to have katamaris regenerate every tarball with the X11R7.x
version number in the names, something we abandoned after about X11R7.1.)
