When the dependency readline is installed in a non-standard location the
installation procedure fails.
If using a non-standard installation location like

  --prefix=/bi/common --exec-prefix=/bi/arch

the configure script default include and library paths should adapt accordingly.
They don't (/usr/local defaults remain).


  CPPFLAGS=-I/bi/common/include LDFLAGS=-L/bi/arch/lib ./configure

This should not be necessary, I think.

Best regards,

D Kreil.
