Follow-up Comment #2, bug #57498 (project groff):

[comment #0 original submission:]

> The patch also updates the order in which options are listed in the usage
statement to match that of the man page.  (Commit ee0ce46b3 changed this order
in the man page, for reasons not entirely clear: the log statement says "Sort
lists of options in locale collation order," but the man page and the usage
statement both ignore the user's current locale and hard-code the order of
their lists.  Nevertheless, for consistency the order should be the same in
both places.)

You're right--that's not clear.

What I meant was the locale collation order for en_US, since that is the
language (and territorial variant) in which the man page is written.
