The PATH shows the commercial product CoSort is installed.  This can
replace AIX's normal sort.  It's intended to be faster.  I suspect it
spews stats to stderr, possibly switchable.  The user needs to improve
his AIX environment, at least when building external software.
Otherwise, tar has to cope with me linking sort with cat.
