Summary0000290: build process fails with coreutils-5

coreutils-5 deprecated the -# syntax for head/tail/sort that is used in
at least one of your Makefiles. If I try to build graphviz-1.10 on a system
with coretutils-5 I get the following build error:

I was able to fix that by changing line 533 in dotneato/common/Makefile (which
is generated by line 40 in
Additional Information

[ellson} These coreutil guys are the ones that changed sort's default
behaviour away from C sort order a couple of years ago,
breaking a number of our scripts and Makefiles that had worked just fine
for ten years!

What language's collate sequence could possibly result in color_names
sorting to this?

I was able to fix that by changing line 533 in dotneato/common/Makefile (which
is generated by line 40 in from $(SORT) +0 -1 to $(SORT) -k0,1

[ellson] Neither '-k0,1' nor '-k1,2' worked here. Instead '-k1,1' worked, but
it looks like
