[logs] Faster unix 'sort' replacement?

I'm having trouble with 'sort' taking alot of cpu-time on a Solaris machine,
and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a replacement for the gnu 'sort'
command, which is faster and will compile on Solaris and preferably Linux

I'm using sort in the standard 'cat <file> | awk '{"compute..."}' | sort |
uniq -c | sort -n -r' type analysis.

Googled for and found 'bogosort', but to no avail...

Any pointers appreciated.
