If it's one fix at a time, then there's time to think about solutions:
There was an old bug in the the archlinux bugtracker involving the combination
of LC_COLLATE and some UTF-8 locales in /etc/profile.
This would be fixed with `LC_ALL comm`, yet all of makepkg would benefit from
a `export LC_COLLATE=C` inline.
Since I can't find the bug, I won't use LC_COLLATE yet.
And wrt to pacman sorting or not... I was very clear in that pacman always
sorts it's output, to which you replied.
