The /usr/lib/find/updatedb as well as /bin/sort use /tmp as scratch
space, but remain silent if there is insufficient space. Our 9 MB
of /tmp turned out to be insufficient.
Modify /usr/lib/find/updatedb like this:
# Directory on large filesystem for sorting space
TEMP=<directory with lots of space>
and use the -T flag of sort to use the TEMP space, replacing every
occurrence of "sort" by "sort -T $TEMP".
