I don't think this is equivalent since a putative strcmp would also do
greater / less than comparison (like intcmp does).  Of course that
leads into all sorts of i18n / locale issues, but likely we'd just punt
(like C's strcmp does) and use ASCII ordering; we've already taken that
route elsewhere.

You can probably gin up something that works using $(sort ...) but it
seems tricky.  Anyway I'm not suggesting this be added right now but
just keeping options open for the future.
