uhh, if your compiling bash in your normal distro and a build of bash
works in the chroot'ed environment after the --enable-static-link is
removed from ./configure, then you're either really lucky or your
standard distro is using a not too modified version of glibc-2.1.3 ...

either way, that linkage is essential...

if you were having problems with ncurses, there were two things you
could do...

cd /usr/lib && ln -s libncurses.a libcurses.a


replace --with-curses     with    --with-ncurses

and it will go through...

if your distro was using a different version of glibc, you could have
had problems...
