Instead of using the same string for every field, let those fields to be set individually on config.h
The current default value is kept (CONFIG_APPNAME), but it should allow fine-tuned configuration at build-time on config.h.

Out of curiosity: What's the use case?
Basically it is to give better vendor/product information on the smbios tags for KVM virtual machines running on RHEL hosts. The most relevant field for me is the BIOS name/version field on smbios, that can be used to identify the specific SeaBIOS build being used, but I also want to set better defaults for the other fields, in case they are not explicitly set by the Qemu process.
On my case, I don't plan to customize all the defines: some smbios fields and the ACPI stuff was added just for completeness. The rationale is that CONFIG_APPNAME is useful, but it affects too many different fields, so I am making the existing config option a bit more flexible.
Which fields do you need to customize, and what problem are you running into if they aren't changed?
