Bug#547622: bsdmainutils: Please document which sort LC_COLLATE locale is expected by "look -b"

Package: bsdmainutils
Version: 6.1.11
Severity: normal

Thanks for maintaining Debian's bsdmainutils

It has some good commands that have stood the test
of time.

Please document specifically how "look -b" expects
its input to be sorted.

For example, the MacOSX man page for look at



    "Input files must be sorted with LC_COLLATE
    set to `C'."
