Oh bother. sort uses alpha/whitespace transitions rather than pure string
comparisons (config5.m4 sorts after config.m4 on a string basis). You *are*
right that we want config.m4 to be before config5.m4.

Okay. Here is the command line that I was thinking of:

  find . -name "config*.m4" | \
    sed 's#\(.*/\(config[0-9]*\).m4\)$#\200 \1#' | \
    sort | \
    sed 's#.* ##'

The first sed produces lines like:

config00 ./server/mpm/spmt_os2/config.m4
config0500 ./modules/aaa/config05.m4

In other words, we make config.m4 act as config00.m4 (for config's with
numbers, the extra 00 doesn't bother them).

Note that we'd want to decide on 1 or 2 digits. Will we ever need two?

In any case... the above cmd line doesn't require extra flags from sort
(thus, the most portable) and the sed lines are simpler. My CVS is screwed
right now ( points to the wrong place), but I can patch it in
when the weekend reorg is fixed.
