That is a different issue, and should not get in our way here.  For
the purposes of this bug, can we agree that qsort_r is not needed, and
the changes that use it should be reverted to use qsort instead?

Yes and no. The previous version did not use qsort, so reverting the changes that use qsort_r will the drop the use of qsort (and qsort_r) entirely.

One could further *modify* the changes to stop using qsort_r, and to use qsort only. But what would be the point? qsort (and qsort_r) are mistakes here; we cannot use them. Dropping the use of qsort_r would be like wiping the lipstick off a pig.
