Maybe I should explain myself.
What do you need a statically linked bash for? Seriously?
For single user mode, init(8) explicitly asks you what shell to
run. So even if you have /usr/local/bin/bash as root's shell and
/usr is unavailable, you can extract yourself from that.
If you want to copy a static bash to, say, /bin/bash, that's outside
the scope of the ports system. We don't need to support this.
As people have pointed out in the past, the dependencies for
bash-static were dubious. Instead of the LIB_DEPENDS on gettext
that MODULES will produce on dynamic archs, it should have
BUILD/RUN_DEPENDS. Oh, and properly the static FLAVOR shouldn't
even exist on static archs. Sure, I could add .if's for all that,
but why bother?
Look at FreeBSD's ports/shells/bash/Makefile for an example how to
make a straightforward port disproportionally complicated by
introducing all sorts of marginal knobs.
