I think that getting Unicode::Collate to work would be the best approach, but here's a hand-rolled one that seems to work the way you want it:

use utf8;
use 5.014;
use warnings;
use List::Util qw/min/;
binmode STDOUT, ':encoding(UTF-8)';

my %order;
    my $source = join '', 'aáàảãạăaáàảãạăắ',
    my $cnt = 0;
    $order{$_} = ++$cnt for split //, $source;
    sub vcmp($$) {
        my ($a, $b) = @_;
        for (0..min(length($a), length($b))) {
            my $cmp = ($order{substr $a, $_, 1} // 0)
                      <=> ($order{ substr $b, $_, 1 } // 0);
            return $cmp if $cmp != 0;
        return length($a) <=> length($b);

say for sort { vcmp($a, $b) } ('ầm', 'ãm', 'ấm chè', 'ám số');

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
