I'm not sure which version of bash you're testing against, but I'm certain
that the bash-3.0 configure script includes the following code:

# check for systems like FreeBSD 5 that only provide /dev/fd/[012]
   exec 3<&0
   if test -r /dev/fd/3; then
     bash_cv_dev_fd=standard
   else
     bash_cv_dev_fd=absent
   fi
   exec 3<&-

and it behaves as intended on my FreeBSD 5.2 machine.
