wish for more-usable bindist

the i386 linux ghc bindist still uses readline 4 
<http://haskell.org/ghc/download_ghc_682.html>, which is hard to get:
readline 5.0 came out almost three and a half years ago 

And I don't want to pollute my Ubuntu system with "compatibility RPMs"; 
in fact I intend to install the bindist as my local user so I don't 
pollute it with extra GHCs either, except I can't.  Could there be a 
bindist with modern readline, or perhaps is it possible to statically 
link with readline?
