You might want to pull the OpenBSD sort into the DragonFly base.  I 
believe they've replaced the GNU version with their own (BSD license, of 
course).  I believe the same is true for diff.
	Please, don't do this.  The OpenBSD sort and diff have far less
	performance and do not contain all the features available in the
	GNU counterparts.
	If it is GPL'ed, it doesn't matter, because functionality comes
	before license. :-)
	P.S. For those interested, please see the discussions about this
	on freebsd-hackers@ mailing list.
