Suggestion for updatedb

I suggest adding the "-u" parameter on the sort that feeds frcode.  That way 
duplicate entries that may have been introduced by specifying overlapping 
directories with "--localpaths" will be pruned.  The justification is that, 
although the find command may have found the item more than once, but the item 
itself only exists once.
Basically, replace:
} | $sort -f | $frcode $frcode_options > $LOCATE_DB.n
} | $sort -fu | $frcode $frcode_options > $LOCATE_DB.n
I actually make this change whenever I install findutils, and thought I should 
pass it back.
Thanks for the great set of utilities.
