[R] readline not found

Hi all,

I just upgraded to R-1.8.0. Everything worked fine but command line 
editing does not work. This clearly indicates that readline has not been 
found in the compilation process.

How could I explicitely indicate where to find it ?

I use a Red Hat 8.0 system. I checked the FAQ which says readline-devel 
is also needed, but I have it already installed. Perhaps should I add 
the configure option --with-readline=path/to/readline ?

 >> rpm -qva | grep readline

Is there a problem with that readline41 version ?

Thanks in advance,
