sort-columns fails on NetBSD

The sort program on NetBSD objects if the field separator is set to 
the same value as the record separator.  (sort-columns) tries to set 
it that way so that the whole line is in the same field.  However the 
sort-columns code already makes sure there are no tabs in the region 
being worked on so we can have the same effect by setting the field 
separator to tab.

Patch is below.
