[HEADS-UP] BSD sort coming to -CURRENT

Hi Michael

We found the problem. In the ispell port, an unusual form of deprecated sort syntax for the key field(s) is used. There are three forms of key field(s) specification:

POSIX standard: $ sort -kPOS1[,POS2]
Documented deprecated form: $ sort +POS1 [-POS2]
Undocumented deprecated form: $ sort -POS2 +POS1

The new sort supports two first forms. The ispell uses the third form (sort -1 +0). We can add support for the third form. We are going to do it today or tomorrow and we will test the ispell build.

BSD sort doesn't work with ports/textproc/ispell, it stops with
