POSIX lexicographical order, ignoring the case of characters.

The problematic bit is probably the underscore, which in ASCII lies
between upper and lower cases...  "sort -f" folds to upper cases, and
so names with underscores appear later in the list, while the script I
used folds to lower cases, because it seemed more natural since most
package names are lower cases.
