Actually, ports has 3.1.10. I also agree that updating to patchlevel 11 
is recommended.
It's also worth saying that the author decided to reroll the distfile 
"bash31-10" (a 2k patch) at his personal site. If/when he decides to 
update, we'll have problems since checksums would no longer 
match. This probably will happen after the freeze is over and we'd have 
6.1/5.5 users complaining they're unable to install shells/bash. (old patch) (new patch)

PS: We're using MASTER_SITE_GNU for distfiles download.
