NetBSD not-so-recently added GNU readline emulation to their libedit.
Last time I looked, they'd made a mess of the code with #ifdefs, but it'd
still be possible to bring across the useful bits.
FWIW, I really don't see the point of partial support for building
GNU-free systems. It sounds like something that should be kept as
a local diff.
