 | After some tracking down, this is not due to utf-8 at all.  It happens in
 | et_EE as well, and it does not happen in en_GB.UTF-8.  It is due to the
 | position of z in the sort in that locale (before u).

you are right, Estonian alphabet looks like 

... o p q r s z t u v... AFAIR.

Thanks for a quick answer :-)


 | In detail, it is down to how make interprets
 | RSRC = $(srcdir)/R/*.R $(srcdir)/R/$(R_OSTYPE)/*.R
 | in ${R_HOME}/src/library/base/Makefile, and we need to force LC_COLLATE=C
 | there.
