/usr/i486-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lreadline
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure:10950: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
#line 10921 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

/* Override any gcc2 internal prototype to avoid an error.  */
#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C"
/* We use char because int might match the return type of a gcc2
   builtin and then its argument prototype would still apply.  */
char rl_callback_read_char ();
#ifdef F77_DUMMY_MAIN
#  ifdef __cplusplus
