wildcard/glob should be sorted
similar to shell glob, perl glob and POSIX glob(3)

commit b9f831b8 added GLOB_NOSORT for no apparent reason,
possibly by mistake.

man 3 glob  is very specific that the only reason to add this flag is
to save processing time, but since ordering actually matters in a
variety of cases, (e.g. when linking .o files into a binary)
the list should be sorted.
