Some packages do this already. The latest GNU Bison release announcement [1],
for example:

  "This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
     Autoconf 2.69
     Automake 1.16.2
     Flex 2.6.4
     Gnulib v0.1-3420-gffbb0ced8

The build-aux/announce-gen script already has support for it:

   --gnulib-version=VERSION     report VERSION as the gnulib version, where
                                VERSION is the result of running git describe
                                in the gnulib source directory.
