Thanks for the info.

I tried this (as well as with -lcurses and -lncurses) and while this
does succeed in building with readline support, I don't think it's
right still.  Tabbing at the Command> prompt for --edit-key completes
the file names in the current dir, not the command names like I'd
expect.  I suppose I'll just wait until 1.4.1 or give CVS a try to see
if it behaves differently.
