Actually, Git uses binary comparison -- a file is changed if any byte
in the file is changed.
What you can configure is how "differences" are computed by the
commands that take differences and display them.
But I've never heard of a configuration that changes the definition of
when a file has changed. I suppose you could write a script that
looks at files and decides which to git-add and which to not. Since
only the git-add'ed files are put in the new commit, that would have
much the same effect.
