Why not make the switch default if it's only for $LFS/static/bin/bash. I mean 
we pass --disable-nls now because it causes static link problmes on some 
systems, so why not pass --disable-bash-malloc because it might cause static 
run (instead of link) problems on some systems. Saves us all some time. The 
explanation of this switch will naturally give people a clue that they can 
omit if if they want to try it out (and that works even better with the new 
installation pages layout coming up).

Added note to bugzilla, will do some testing.
