As was noted in the forwarded message, it should only be necessary to
export LC_COLLATE, not LC_ALL. In general, depending on alphabetical
order without doing that is a Bad Idea these days, and will only get
worse. (E.g., ls does the same thing; output will be sorted with upper
and lower case interspersed unless using POSIX collation--don't expect
Makefile to be at the top!)
