Creating Bash 4.3.27 source package

by Joe Kuan

Due to the severity of shellshock bug, I have to patch some of the internal legacy systems, like FreeBSD 8.0 which there are no more updates available. The only way I can update is to download the source from GNU site and build from that. However, the main source package is only available at version 4.3.0 at the time of writing. To remove the shellshock bug, it needs at least version 4.3.25. Although all the patches are located in the bash-4.3-patches directory, not of all them were created by pointing to “../bash-4.3” directory, some with different names.

So here it is, I have created this bash source package 4.3.27 with all these patches. I built it on FreeBSD and it passed the env test.
