That’s odd though. Isn’t there some upstream patch we could take?
Surely ‘sort’ has no reason to contain arch-specific code?
If there’s no such patch, we can go with the patch above, but then there
should be a comment linking to bug reports and reassuring the reader
that yes, some packages do build even without these commands. :-)
(There’s no “coreutils” command BTW, unless enabling the
everything-in-one-binary trick, no?)
