I see these are all published in the gnu ftp server :


So I will try again from the sources but am curious if there is a definitive
list of dependencies that bash 5.0.7 will need/want ?

The same as bash 5.0.  The INSTALL file in the top level directory
of the source tree is probably the closest to a "definitive list".
These patches are extremely small and do not change the build procedure
or the tools required.

Perhaps whoever packages bash for your operating system (if you're on some
form of BSD or Linux) has already done whatever work you're trying to do,
in terms of identifying the tools and resources necessary to build bash
on your operating system.

If you're on a commercial Unix, you're typically on your own.  The error
messages you get during ./configure and during the build should be
enough to point the way to anything you're missing, but will obviously
not point out the things you've already got.

I don't think bash 5 has hit Debian sid yet. As for "commercial" UNIX
like Solaris, well, that platform is on life support and a nightmare to
deal with. So no sense in wasting time there anymore.
