installers: handle asprintf() correctly
It appears that the glibc version of asprintf() is braindamaged, and doesn't set the target pointer to NULL in the event of an error (only returns -1). Therefore we need to check the return value. Just in case someone else made the *opposite* error, also check the pointer. Bleh. The glibc documentation states that *BSD sets the pointer to NULL, but instead of following that, the glibc people put warn_unused_result on asprintf. Sigh. Signed-off-by: H.
