readline support

P: n/a
Hi,

I am trying to get readline support in python.

I am working on Linux and I have the latest version from svn. After I
../configure and make I can run python, but the readline support is not
there.

If I do:
%./configure >& out.txt
%grep readline out.txt
checking for readline in -lreadline... yes
checking for rl_callback_handler_install in -lreadline... yes
checking for rl_pre_input_hook in -lreadline... yes
checking for rl_completion_matches in -lreadline... yes

it seems that readline library is there and is found by python.

How can I further track down this issue?

Thanks,
Ray
