GNU Autoconf is another such project (all use of gnulib is limited to
non-code modules); right now it just manually copies files because
gnulib-tool doesn't quite do the right thing (see the 'make
gnulib-update' rule encoded into autoconf's cfg.mk).

Absolutely - patches are welcome to make gnulib-tool useful in a
non-code setting.
