So please tell me a way to use the sort program in contexts which allow no environment variable settings. I will be happy to accept it.

I would cheekily point out that the reason you see the unwelcome sort order in the first place is caused by an environment variable.

If you do not like the machine/X session/whichever default which is ignoring case and punctuation, perhaps that is the problem which should be changed?

Another [custom] solution might be a wrapper around /usr/bin/sort which sets the environment according based on these new options, then calls /usr/bin/sort.real
