thanks, marc+brian. it was indeed not installed. i was under the mistaken
impression that readline was just a linkto library. the compile now works great.
suggestion: if libreadline is installed and libreadline-devel is not
installed, please print a warning/suggestion message during the ./configure.
(i wonder whether there are other similar libraries for which I should have
installed the devel version, too.)
I did search R documentation for "readline" failures via google for a while,
but failed to find this particular reference. Yep, I did not fully read the
docs from start to end again (its been a while), so mea culpa. still, adding
the warning at ./configure time is a good idea. apologies for taking
everyone's time. and thanks for the help. now I will try to research how to
build a binary for md 9.2 for others (to make up!)
