These commands work as expected:

$wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/mingw/bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1-src.tar.bz2

$tar -xjvf bash-3.1-MSYS-1.0.11-1-src.tar.bz2

I'd guess that you are using a faulty tool to extract the archive.

If you still want to try building bash yourself, study 'INSTALL.MSYS'
in that archive.
