Using GNU sort allows the use of the -z flag, which will ensure that
locate can correctly process path names containing a newline.  Hence
there is an advantage to using GNU sort with GNU findutils.

However, it is not essential, if you don't want to process filenames
containing newlines.

The location of the sort command is determined by "configure" at build time.
