This is not exactly unusual. You should first check to see if lc_collate is set differently in the two installations --- but even if it's the same, there are often platform-specific interpretations of the sorting rules. (Not to mention that OS X is flat out broken when it comes to sorting UTF8 data ...)
If you want consistent cross-platform results, "C" locale will get that for you, but it's pretty stupid about non-ASCII characters.
