RE-install won't erase your personal home directory and data (Your Desktop, etc). Not unless you specifically reFORMAT the disk.

A Linux compiled bash wouldn't work on Mac, even if it was done statically, and using only POSIX interfaces. (Assuming that's possible.) Linux and Mac use different ABI's and thus need a different executable file format. Linux uses ELF and Mac uses Mach-O.

And, as far as I know, OS-X is based on the Mach kernel, not the original BSD one.

Maybe the homebrew install method works for you?
