gnulib-tool has a nice line-based output, making it amenable to
comparison tools.  I fear to be pointing out the obvious if I suggest
putting in import-gnulib/bootstrap something like this:

  gnulib-tool --update | tee new-gnulib-output
  test -f old-gnulib-output && {
    echo "gnulib-tool output has changed:"
    diff -u old-gnulib-output new-gnulib-output
  # stop here for ACK of differences?
  mv new-gnulib-output old-gnulib-output

(Or post-process the output with sed to only catch differences in the
recommendation section.)
