The munin-node port has no DEPENDS for ports that are required for
plugins, e.g. Python, because that would pull in a lot of software the
user does not need because he will not use those plugins.

Generally, plugins tell you if they are missing something. This will of
course not work for interpreters needed to execute the plugin itself. I
don't know why revision 1.30 of the port Makefile added bash, but
presumably not for scripts that have a shebang of "#!/bin/bash"...

This leaves only munin-check apart from some plugins. Last time I looked,
munin-check did not work. Also, munin-check is part of the master,
not the node. So there does not seem to be a need to DEPEND on bash
for munin-node.
