This is controlled by the NON_INTERACTIVE_LOGIN_SHELLS option in
config-top.h.  It's not enabled by default.  Define that option and
rebuild, and you should have the behavior you want.

I don't know what version of bash you replaced, but it's likely that Red
Hat defined that option before building the version of bash shipped with
Fedora 6.  It's been there for 15 years.
