This will require several gnulib-tool invocations in some projects, but
I guess I can write a script to do it.

That is what caused this problem -- what do you think about making
gnulib-tool avoid automatically adding gnulib directories under any
directory with a configure.ac?

Perhaps it can be combined with gnulib-tool recognizing
AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS and invoking gnulib-tool from these sub-directories.
But maybe it is too fragile?
