I want to upgrade the built-ub bash 3.2 shell on my macOS Catalina (10.15.6) to bash 5.0.

I tried to do this by building from scratch, using the methods given at But the final step, “sudo make install” gave a fatal error of ‘libintl.h’ file not found.

So then I successfully installed the MacPorts port bash @5.0.17_0.
