--- Comment #12 from Mark Johnston <markj@FreeBSD.org> ---
I'm going to close this one now that PR 255840 is fixed as well.  On main we're
still not as fast as GNU sort, but the difference is much smaller:

markj@nuc> time sort -n test.txt > /dev/null

real    0m0.925s
user    0m0.875s
sys     0m0.050s

markj@nuc> time LC_ALL=C sort -n test.txt > /dev/null

real    0m0.782s
user    0m0.738s
sys     0m0.033s

markj@nuc> time gsort --parallel 1 -n test.txt > /dev/null

real    0m0.423s
user    0m0.380s
sys     0m0.041s

> This isn't really a problem, since FreeBSD's sort command is more than fast enough for my purposes, but it seems worth reporting in case it exposes an undiscovered problem that might be easy to fix.

I think this PR has achieved its goals. :)
