Nothing in that command would create a ~/.bashrc

Yep, you have not placed stuff there! :-)

CRUX is a very minimal distribution with regards to things like this.
While stuff like debian, ubuntu, fedora would do lots of stuff
automagically in a situation like this - crux will not. And it's by
"design". You are obviously free to add a skel dir with the desired
content if you want.
