Thanks for posting the patch.  I fixed it a different way, but this
will work.  (Actually, the easiest thing to do is to run the following
command before building bash the first time:

echo 'bash_cv_dev_fd=${bash_cv_dev_fd=absent}' >> config.cache

and just not worry about whether or not fdescfs is mounted.  In the
end, it's probably not the best thing for this decision to be made
at configure/compile time.)
