install; readline error with 7.3.4

On my RH 9.0 linux system when ./configuring 7.3.4 I get an error about
not finding the readline libs, however both the readline and
readline-devel rpms are installed:

# rpm -qa | grep readline
readline-4.3-5
readline-devel-4.3-5

What library/rpm am I missing?

The config.log file has this to say:

configure:5786: result: no
configure:5800: checking for readline
configure:5837: gcc -o conftest -O2 conftest.c -lreadline -lcrypt
-lresolv -lnsl -ldl -lm -lbsd >&5

On some linux redhat-ish distros I think you also need ncurses-devel
and/or termcap-devel for configure to find readline capabilities.
