If someone were to develop a tool that compared consecutive
./configure runs and reported major differences,
That's not a problem... just run a diff across the 'config.status'
files. But what is with packages which do not use ./configure but have
other kinds of build-time feature-checks?
Comparing resulting packages seems to be a more universal way for
detecting missing BuildRequires:.
