[R] error installing package in linux R

I've been using R on windows for a number of years, so when
I recently installed 
Linux I wanted to install R as well. Downloading and
installing the rpm's for R-Base and R-recommended went well
and I seem to have a functioning R.

 I then downloaded the quadreg package and used R CMD
INSTALL to install it. All went well up to a message:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lreadline
which stopped the installation. I checked to see whether
readline is installed and found that it is and, furthermore,
the arrow keys and emacs keys work fine in R. Any help would
be appreciated.

I'm using R 1.5.1 on Mandrake Linux 8.2.
