tetex - texconfig fails due to an obsolete option in 'sort'
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:10:56 EDT
Description of problem:
$ texconfig conf
=========================== active config files ==========================
sort: open failed: +1: No such file or directory
Currently supplied /bin/sort does not accept options like '+1'. Attached
trivial patch resolves the issue.

change sort option to a POSIX acceptable form
The sort behaves correctly for me:
[jnovy@enigma devel]$ texconfig conf | grep sort
with coreutils-5.2.1-48.1. What's the output of `rpm -q coreutils` on your box?
I don't like the +1 argument to sort though.

This is for "devel", remember? And that is the current sort from "rawhide" which
become more POSIX-strict. coreutils-5.2.1-48.1 is from FC4 and it will still
accept +1 for fields specifications.
It's now fixed in rawhide.
