Submission from: (NULL) (

when I try to install R by "./configure", I get the following message:

configure: error: --with-readline=yes (default) and headers/libs are not
<end of quote>.

Installation by "./configure --with-readline=no" works, but then I do not have
the comfort do use the arrow-keys for moving the cursor within a command or
scrolling through command history. Any ideas?
