Yes, that's right. It won't solve the problem of running out of space in
/tmp, unless your sort program handles the TMPDIR environment variable
directly, but it will prevent conflicts with the BSD sort -T option, which
does something else (and can fail if you use it in this way).

Does your manual page for sort(1) have anything to say about how one might
specify an alternate temporary directory?

It's part of the GNU textutils package, if that helps. I've never had
to find it myself, as it comes standard with Red Hat Linux.
