Two, separate thoughts.

1) config-manager is designed to do this sort of iteration + stuff. So,
a little tweak to tla and config-manager would give us:
cm missing <config>
 case $? in
   0 ;; # no change
   1 ;; # changes occured
   2 ;; # error occured

for the whole tree.

2) doesn't make World in the bsd ports system do something similar -
grab the most recent stuff abd build?
