You can always install bash with "pkg_add". The default package is
not built as a static binary, but you can compile a static bash
binary from its port:

# cd /usr/ports/shells/bash
# make WITH_STATIC_BASH=1 install clean

I thought that was what this port was for:

Port: bash-static-4.1.5_2
Path: /usr/ports/shells/bash-static
Info: The GNU Project's Bourne Again SHell

Yes, that's what bash-static enables.

I only mentioned WITH_STATIC_BASH because it's what I usually prefer to
avoid gettext/ troubles when portupgrade is still half-done
and I want to open a new screen window or xterm.
