Sure, there are systems that don't want or need the readline library
installed or things linked to it.  That's not unusual.  It's not what
we're talking about here.

What we're talking about is removing about 1 MB of source code
(lib/readline) from the bash source tree *wherever you're building it*.
This doesn't have anything to do with readline being built or installed.
I don't have any doubt that you encountered a build error when you removed
lib/readline from the bash source tree.  What I'm wondering is what you
thought you would gain by doing it.
