I think I found a solution:

The key is the ImagePadding option.  The above example could be modified
like this:

GraphicsRow[
  Show[#, ImagePadding -> {{All, All}, {All, 5}}] & /@ {LogLogPlot[
     1 + Sin[x], {x, 1, 100}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
     FrameLabel -> {"horizontal", "vertical"}, AspectRatio -> 4/5],
    Plot[Sinc[x], {x, -5, 5}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
     FrameLabel -> {"horizontal", "vertical"}, AspectRatio -> 4/5]}]

Each graphic needs to have the same top and bottom ImagePadding.  The
automatically computed values at the bottom are the same in this
particular case.  The top value was set to 5 manually.  If I understand
it correctly, the value given to ImagePadding is to be understood in
printer's points (but it accepts Scaled[] values as well).
