That's odd. I have gnulib as a submodule of my project (GNU Zile), and
to update it I cd into the gnulib directory and do "git up" followed
by committing the new revision of the submodule. Usually takes me
rather less than 5 hours!

I heartily agree. If it takes 5 hours to update you're doing something
wrong. Ask on the gnulib mailing list, there's usually someone happy
to help there.
