Maybe this is inefficient or too simple but I would do this:
LABEL var1="First variable label here"
var2="Second variable label here"
var150="150th variable label here";
PROC CONTENTS DATA=TEMP;
Where "what.ever" is the existing dataset name, and "var1-var150"
are the names of the 150 variables.
If everything looks hunky-dory on the output then I'd change
"TEMP" to "what.ever" and do it again.
