I think errors like this usually happen because you aren't finding the
library you just installed (yes, and for wisdom like this, you pay 
nothing! :-)).  I do know that when installing postgresql, another 
Readline-using application, the magic bullet is to tell configure where to 

./configure --with-includes=/sw/include/ --with-libraries=/sw/lib

If this doesn't solve the problem, I'm not sure of the answer.
