gnulib-tool accepts --source-base and --m4-base as destination for files.
it should also accept --source-common and --m4-common which specify
the location of modules which are in the "core" of the project, i.e., which
can be assumed to be present.
So I will write something like:
gnulib-tool --source-base=src/gllib --m4-base=src/glm4 foo
gnulib-tool --source-common=src/gllib --m4-common=src/glm4
  --source-base=modules/syscalls/gllib --m4-base=modules/syscalls/glm4 bar
and if bar depends on foo, then foo files will not be added to
and modules/syscalls/glm4, instead they will be found in src/gllib & src/glm4
by the second invocation of gnulib-tool.
