I suggest to Sebastian to put bash-osx.tar.gz in MACOSX directory. No need
of a compiler.

just launch terminal and type

sudo tar xvzf <path>/bash-osx.tar.gz

and bash will be installed (I know that some mac users dislike terminal, but
in fact, macOSX is not presently usable without terminal, and bash
installation procedure may be easily documented).

Yes, but sh seems to be unable to run the cd-install script. If it is a
zsh-sh emulation problem, it will not be easy to get the script to work
without bash.
