Yeah, tried that too.. still no dice. There is something whacky going on
here which I don't yet fully understand.

Andreas Jaeger suggested:-
 - build glibc-2.3 on host and install into a non-standard prefix
 - build static bash and link against that glibc-2.3
 - install that bash binary into the chroot

I don't like that solution at all :(

My solution at this point is to just move libnss_files* and libnss_compat*
out of the way (temporarily), but this feels like a dirty hack and may
have some unwanted side effects.
