I don't know what's the right way, but as I've said, detecting at
installation time whether there is a GNU-compatible sort in the path and
where is it located seems very fragile to me. Not to mention that it
doesn't adapt very well to situations where you modify the PATH or
add/remove items to it (something I do quite frequently).
