No, that is a gross hack (which I inflicted on my notebook too...).
The correct fix would be to install the real libreadline.so.4.1, or
recompile R for the newer library.
I wonder: Is this because configure selects the most precise version
number when looking for libraries? If so, it might get tricky to work
around for the RPM maintainer.
