t/Makefile: Use $(sort ...) explicitly where needed
Starting from GNU Make 3.82 $(wildcard ...) no longer sorts the result (from NEWS): * WARNING: Backward-incompatibility! Wildcards were not documented as returning sorted values, but the results have been sorted up until this release.. If your makefiles require sorted results from wildcard expansions, use the $(sort ...) function to request it explicitly. I usually watch test progress visually, and if tests are sorted, even with make -j4 they go more or less incrementally by their t number. On the other side, without sorting, tests are executed in seemingly random order even for -j1. Let's please maintain sane tests order for perceived prettyness. Another note is that in GNU Make sort also works as uniq, so after sort being removed, we might expect e.g. $(wildcard *.sh a.*) to produce duplicates for e.g. "". From this point of view, adding sort could be seen as hardening t/Makefile from accidentally introduced dups. It turned out that prevous releases of GNU Make did not perform full sort in $(wildcard), only sorting results for each pattern, that's why explicit sort-as-uniq is relevant even for older makes.
