You can grab any readline distribution from the usual GNU sources, build
it, and install it in a directory under your home directory (DESTDIR).
Then you can build bash and configure --with-installed-readline
(--with-installed-readline=DIRECTORY).

You may find that the readline version you choose is too old to use and
won't satisfy the external dependencies of the bash version you're using.
