While checking out the glibc FAQ, I saw this 
<>. I am not an expert 
so cannot say if that is the problem, but can a similar approach be 
followed when compiling the static bash? One problem is that the host 
most probably won't have static versions of the nss libs, so:( So we 
might as well compile the static version of the new glibc on the host 
(with a different prefix of course) and link static bash against it.

Off to zzzZZZ...
