While I recall that we've often discussed building command history into 
Rakudo's REPL directly, the workaround suggested to me was to use 'rlwrap':

   $ rlwrap ./perl6

Then the arrow keys work, as well as CTRL-P and other bash-like history 
commands.  I've never used CTRL-K for history, but rlwrap is customizable so 
there's probably a way to get that to work somehow.
