Perl seems able to handle this fine.  You don't need to change it for
the entire process.  Just for sort.

  use IO::File;
  use strict;
  sub perlsort {
      my $filename = shift;
      my $cmd = "LC_COLLATE=en_US.UTF-8 sort $filename |";
      my $file = IO::File->new();
      if (!$file->open($cmd)) {
          die "Error: Could not run sort: $!\n";
      while (defined($_ = $file->getline())) {
          print $_;
      if (!$file->close()) {
          die "Error: Could not sort: $!\n";

  if (length($ARGV[0])) {
