I build with my own script.
The problem was that the default for COMPILE_INITS changed with gs8.64.
$ diff gs8.63/src/unix-gcc.mak gs8.64/base/unix-gcc.mak | grep COMPILE_INITS
I added COMPILE_INITS=0 to my make command line, and the size went down.
$ ls -l gs8.63/gs.lin gs8.64/gs.lin
-rwxrwxrwx 1 william users 3386464 2009-01-23 11:59 gs8.63/gs.lin
-rwxrwxrwx 1 william users 3483420 2009-02-20 02:41 gs8.64/gs.lin
I reread the change logs, and I see that this is documented:

Update documentation on the COMPILE_INITS makefile variable.
In particular, it's normally no longer 0.
