It's commented out in 5.10 (Breezy Badger).

That would add complexity to mc.  HISTCONTROL is currently set in the
environment after forking but before bash is started.  Setting anything
after .bashrc requires sending a command to the shell, just like it's
done with "cd".  If you want to check the value of HISTCONTROL in the
command, it becomes quite long. (I think you would use "case" to avoid
calling external programs).

Another solution would be to have a wrapper for .bashrc that would
run .bahsrc and then change HISTCONTROL.  You can do it already - just
create a file called bashrc under ~/.mc
