I agree, and I propose to add a gnulib-tool option --all-libs, that
has the effect of adding all mentioned external libraries
  - to the dependencies of libgnu.la, if --libtool is used,
  - to the LIBS variable, if --libtool is not used.

Use of --as-needed will be possible, but not mandatory, if --all-libs
is used.
