Thanks for the quick reply!

/bin/sh is a symbolic link to /bin bash. 'ldd /bin/bash' gives:

        libreadline.so.4 => /lib/libreadline.so.4 (0x4002f000)
        libhistory.so.4 => /lib/libhistory.so.4 (0x4005c000)
        libncurses.so.5 => /lib/libncurses.so.5 (0x40063000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x400a9000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/libc.so.6 (0x400ad000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

In directory /lib there is libreadline.so.4, which is a symbolic link to
libreadline.so.4.3. I didn't find any other candidates for
readline-libraries on my system. How to proceed? Should I transfer old
readline-files from my old box?

Which readline-versions is R known to work with? Writing these lines, I 
think I remember this was an issue on this list some time ago.

Best ...
