I thought there was some way of doing it with awk... I really need to figure
out how that utility works... ;-)

With your awk line above, the only packages that show up strange are:

xenomai		qstrip,$(BR2_PACKAGE_XENOMAI_VERSION))
imagemagick		$(IMAGEMAGICK_MAJOR)-6
binutils		qstrip,$(BR2_BINUTILS_VERSION))
microperl		$(MICROPERL_MAJ).8.8
haserl		qstrip,$(BR2_PACKAGE_HASERL_VERSION))

And, of course, the ones with version major.minor only show the major version.

Regardless, do you think this patch is worth submitting?
