There is no 'Comapre SSIS Packages and identify differences' functionality in SSMS / VB / SSDT.

What you can do is open any super-dooper file comparison tool like Ultra Edit / Ultra Compare, then load both of the .dtsx packages (as they're XML format), then compare the two files.   Keep in mind you're going to see every little cosmetic difference as well as what you're really looking for.

Good luck.
