As Jonathan correctly pointed out, configure couldn't find libreadline.

In general, and I'm pretty sure this is in the fink FAQ, you need to add the search paths to fink-installed libs and headers.
setenv CPPFLAGS '-no-cpp-precomp -I/sw/include'
setenv LDFLAGS '-L/sw/lib'

The -no-cpp-precomp flag is unrelated to the problem, but it'll reduce the compile time You probably need to specify FLIBS too, if configure barfs on g77 installed by fink
setenv FLIBS '-L/sw/lib -lg2c'

Please let me know if this worksm and I'll add it to the wiki page

checking for rl_set_keyboard_input_timeout in -lreadline... no
configure: WARNING: I need GNU Readline 4.2 or later
configure: error: this is fatal unless you specify --disable-readline
