Bug Report? readline...

Hello developers,

I just compiled R 0.62.3 on my Linux-box. However, the R
prompt doesn't seem to use the gnu-readline, but generates
fancy escapes when using the cursor keys.

As I
- have GNU readline installed,
- have run configure with option --enable-readline,
- unsuccessfully have spent half a day browsing through
  the sources in order to find a reason...

...I don't know what went wrong. Is this a bug?

If you can tell me how I can activate the readline,
please mail to my private address (wreich@gwdg.de)

TIA, Wendelin
