Bug in busybox base applet?

If you create a symlink "sort" and point it at busybox, but you haven't 
compiled the sort applet into busybox, busybox falls back to being busybox 
and treating the first argument at the name of the applet to run.

This means "./sort file" gives you an error message "file: applet not found" 
which is confusing.
