I've built 1.4.0 on Fedora Core 2 and haven't been able to get
readline support working. The configure output says it has found the
proper readline libraries, at least partly:
checking whether readline support is requested... yes
checking for add_history in -lreadline... no
checking readline/readline.h usability... yes
checking readline/readline.h presence... yes
checking for readline/readline.h... yes
I'm not much for understanding the autoconf tools, but looking a
little at it, I think it's because of the failure to find add_history
in -lreadline. That looks like it leaves HAVE_LIBREADLINE undefined
in config.h and so readline doesn't get used.
Is there something wrong with the readline libs on FC2 (too new, too
old, borked install, sysadmin stupidity)? Or maybe it's a libtool
Readline is version 4.3, with the devel rpm installed. Libtool is
1.5.6. I can post config.log from my build if it'd help.

Drugs may lead to nowhere, but at least it's the scenic route.
