I apologize if the following sounds naive. I've only used RCS.
What about recording in a simple text file the versions used
in each release. For example, for each release of a product,
record in the simple text file, <product>.release.log, the
text something like:

  1.40 Makefile
  1.2 basic_targets.imk
  1.4 build_variants/gcc/compile_link_commands.imk
  1.2 build_variants/gcc/compile_patterns.imk
  1.10 build_variants/gcc/compiler.imk
  1.1 clean_target.imk
  1.4 default.imk
  1.7 compiler_tests/gc_stl_collect_hide/main.multi_inherit_prox.cpp
  1.1 compiler_tests/gc_stl_collect_hide/subj_base.cpp
  1.1 compiler_tests/gc_stl_collect_hide/subj_base.hpp
  1.5 compiler_tests/gc_stl_collect_hide/target.imk
  1.2 compiler_tests/gc_stl_collect_hide/test_subjects.hpp

and version control <product>.release.log. Then comparing the
differences between different releases would simply involve
comparing different versions of <product>.release.log.
