Is there any way to transfer a year's worth of XP updates from one computer,
such as to a vacation home where only dialup is availavle and it takes three
days to download them?

yes,
use the remote pc to determine what updates it needs
(not all updates applied to home pc will apply to remote pc and not updates
for remote pc will be applied to local pc unless they are identical)
run windows update and copy down the update numbers
download the required updates from windows update catalog

If you cant see the link to windows update catalog
[personalize windows update]
[x] display the link to windows update catalog
[save settings]

save all the required updates in a folder tree
burn the folder tree to cdrom
run the cdrom updates on the remote pc
