I think you would have to de-populate the TeXMF/TeX tree(s) and
repopulate them from very early TeX Live releases on CD/DVD,
then endeavour to rebuild the LaTeX 2.09 format.  I probably
have all TeX Live CDs going back to shortly before Noah
started caulking his arc, so ask if you need back issues.
