To get the MacPorts bash 5.0 the default shell, I now tried:
- edit /private/etc/shells so as to add /opt/local/bin/bash
- in System Preferences > Users & Groups, I opened Advanced Options for my (adminstrator’s) account and changed the entry for Login shell to /opt/local/bin/bash
Still, when I open Terminal and issue command “echo $BASH_VERSION” I get response: 3.2.57(1)-release
Note: if in that apparent 3.2.57 shell in Terminal, if I give command “bash” then of course I get response 5.0.17(1)-release

But the final step, “sudo make install” gave a fatal error of ‘libintl.h’ file not found.
