OK after much bisecting I've narrowed it down to a patch in libtool
2.4 added by Debian in
libtool 2.4-1 The result moves the processing of dependancy_libs
in libtool which breaks the passing of the flags in the subtle and
maddening way discussed.

I've attached the libtool patch for reference. Once I've figured out
what it's trying to achieve
I'll raise a bug with Debian/Ubuntu to fix their libtool and then
we'll finally be able to build a newer
rrdtool on Debian.
