Ooops! I had not noticed it even had patches, sorry.

It might be worth mentioning the possible existence of patches in README

As is normal for projects I had limited time so I just googled "bash
src" and downloaded the newest. 

I needed a statically linked bash for testing an arm board. I did not
expect it to be nearly 3MB though ! It surprises me that a statically
linked bash is bigger than the entire busybox binary i've compiled, or
my kernel image for that matter. Is this bloat gcc, some failing of the
linker or bash itself?
