Thanks; any suggestions on how to proceed?  I don't have commit
privileges to the xorg repositories (and no need to get them for such a
trivial patch), should I go through individual maintainers or should
someone Just Do It?

One thing we might want to consider before we change all 240 modules is
instead changing xorg-macros to install its autogen.sh as
$prefix/bin/xorg-autogen.sh or something, then all of the xorg autogen
scripts can just be:

exec xorg-autogen.sh "$@"

This is effectively what we do with gnome-common, except some random
modules still have hand-written ones.  Consistency - not yet our strong
point =/
