I'm sorry to hear that Solaris is a nightmare. Solaris 11.4 (the current
supported version) has bash 5 already included


And we are on patch level 3


Bash is one of the components we follow closely, so I'll be filing
internal bugs to update to latest patch level tomorrow. The Makefile
lists requirements

REQUIRED_PACKAGES += library/ncurses
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += shell/ksh93
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += terminal/screen

screen is needed for testing only (as the tests can be executed remotely
without having real terminal available). Bash uses configure.mk build style


Which lists more dependencies

REQUIRED_PACKAGES += developer/build/autoconf
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += developer/build/automake
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += developer/build/gnu-make
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += developer/build/libtool
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += developer/build/pkg-config
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += developer/macro/gnu-m4
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += file/gnu-coreutils
REQUIRED_PACKAGES += library/libtool/libltdl

Hope this helps
