This is basically what we are doing now, except that we use sort -n -b,
which just ignores any blank spaces before the name.  The -b is really not
necessary, since we define what the input is.  In reality, we know that we
will always get a list of strings of the format


So, we could just remove the config and .m4, but having them there makes
converting back to the original string easier.

Consider which is easier to convert:



I believe the second is easier to convert, because config and .m4 provide
boundaries to the portion that may change in each string.  The fact that
sort on OpenBSD when used without any arguments leads me to believe that
we should continue to use -n with or without -b.
