This still isn't ideal.  The readline library has some shell specific
code that isn't invoked if libreadline is a shared lib.  Look at the
code inside the SHELL ifdefs.

If you really want to have bash work with a shared libreadline,
introduce a new global variable into libreadline, rl_shell.  Replace
'#ifdef SHELL' with 'if (rl_shell)'.   Then bash can set this
