I'm surprised it is actually used as it was pointed out to me that the script
has been non-functional for quite a while. Anyway, it cannot easily be "restored"
because the old bsdmainutils package does not exist anymore. All tools except
ncal and calendar, which are now in their own package, are now build out of
util-linux. Would it be possible to include lorder.sh in one of the affected
freebsd packages?
