gnulib-tool is just one part of the 'autogen.sh' or 'bootstrap' script.
It is normal and expected that after running gnulib-tool, this script
needs to run additional commands, like
  gnulib-tool --copy-file build-aux/config.guess build-aux/config.guess
  chmod a+x build-aux/config.guess
  fetching the PO files from the Translation Project
  aclocal -I m4
  automake --add-missing --copy

Thus the primary mechanism for making such adjustments is in autogen.sh,
which is completely in the hands of the project. 'bootstrap' is also
highly customizable, if you take the rewrite from Gary.

The secondary mechanism is that a package can have a README-release.diff
file and use the --local-dir option.

This should address your wish.
