Thank you very much for your patch. For a first patch this is near

The “revision” variable is used internally to ensure that the version
string increases monotonically. Git commit hashes are random, so a
future commit could end up lower in a sorted list that an older commit.
That’s why we put a “revision” string before the commit hash. The
revision usually starts at 1 and is incremented each time the commit
hash is updated.
In this case we can do without this because the last commit is also the
tag “0.1.0”, which we can use directly.

xproto does not seem to be needed.

You can specify the “prefix” variable instead of patching the Makefile.

Here we should use complete sentences.

This is a dual license, which should be noted in a comment.
I pushed the patch to the master branch with commit 16bb27f28 after
performing these changes and adding a copyright line for you.
