This is enabled by default and works for me.

$ help builtin
builtin: builtin [shell-builtin [arg ...]]
     Run a shell builtin.  This is useful when you wish to rename a
     shell builtin to be a function, but need the functionality of the
     builtin within the function itself.

Yes, it is enabled by default.

Run `sudo port configure bash` and have a look at the file
'$(port work bash)/bash-3.2/config.h'.

For example for --enable-progcomp there is
'#define PROGRAMMABLE_COMPLETION 1'. The mapping from --enable-foo to 
FOO is done in
