I don't see why you couldn't add a show ip bg sum to the commands 
run...but the problem I'd see with doing that in rancid is that if you're 
talking about BGP (full routes, peering) with external AS's, the 
number of prefixes received is likely to be in constant flux, causing a 
diff every time rancid runs.
