The libtool version in debian didn't change for a while so I
doubt this.  And since the source itself didn't change either, I
don't see how libtool can cause this at all.

Do you only see this difference with libraries, or also with

This seems to have been a temporary problem that has now gone
away, and all the obvious candidates don't seem to be the cause.

Building the same source (from sid) on sarge gives:
.rodata             689389   2101632
.data                40000   3907584

Which is comparable to the current version in sarge:
.rodata           684173   2084992
.data              40000   3883168
