[R] readline?

We've recently "upgraded" a server to solaris 8, and in reinstalling R
I've encountered a problem in getting it to recognize the readline library.
I have installed readline in what I believe to be the "usual" place:
/usr/local/lib with include files in /usr/local/include/readline.
But ./configure  produces:

ragnar.econ.uiuc.edu# grep readline hout
checking for rl_callback_read_char in -lreadline... (cached) no
checking for readline/history.h... (cached) no
checking for readline/readline.h... (cached) no

I've checked the following:

ragnar.econ.uiuc.edu# dump -t /usr/local/lib/libreadline.so |grep callback
[2619]   0x11ad8     272      2         1       0       0x3     rl_callback_read_char

Any suggestions for further checking would be most welcome.
