I solved my problem using the attached patch.

The patch shows that it is possible to use different sortings for keys 
(joinfield) in join.

I integrated some / most of the code from sort.c verbaly  in order to see 
what's needed to compile it successfully in join.c .
I did no tests beside my special usecase mentioned earlier.

It's clear that a user-friendly key-selection needs a lot more work. Same is 
about a unified version of join and sort.

Thanks to Paul and Christian Perle for their valueable help so far.

The FSF can make any use of the code here. 
It was theirs already before  ;-)
