Probably gtags is not implemented very well.

Sounds like it.

It seems like there should be a rule to collect the source file list
from all Makefiles (including subordinate Makefiles) followed-up by
another rule which actually executes cscope using the file list.

That's where I got stuck.  If there were such a rule, it would be easy to dump
the filelist into cscope.files in the top level of the build directory and
pass that as an argument to cscope.

It should be no different than other recursive Automake rules (e.g. 'dist'). Each would concatenate its own source file list to a 'cscope.files' in the top level of the build directory. Once the rule in all the's has been executed, cscope would be executed. In fact, I think that the existing 'make dist' is the best example of this because it is pretty similar.
