--- Comment #8 from Mark Johnston <markj_at_FreeBSD.org> ---
We are looking at changing the default to mergesort.  One other thing that will
help a lot is to set LC_ALL=C in the sort(1) invocation.  In this case sort(1)
will use radix sort and will assume that each character occupies a single byte,
which makes the comparison function much faster.
