You can't use sort as the first step, and my script didn't do that
either, but the line for ./usr apears to need to come before e.g.
./usr/include/a.out.h, otherwise mtree will complain.

Uh, then the current check between the METALOG file and what's
installed matches up needs to be undone in that it should not complain
of now-obsolete entries.  Either that, or now-obsolete files and
directories should automatically be removed from METALOG.  I'd
suggest the latter, together with a scheme which curtails the growth
of METALOG on repeated UPDATE builds.
