If your platform is Linux or Mac OS, you can use Michael Sternberg's  
amazing diffps to compare 2 PDFs:


A simple change of a comma for a period will be detected in a 700 page  
document. Also, a difference in protrusion will be detected as well;  
so, if you know that with LuaTeX you're not getting protrusion, I  
wouldn't use diffps to compare a large document, as you'll get changes  
in every page.
