Hi Mike,

Thanks a lot for quick answer. I'm sure that you in the right way. And I
hope you will test autotool scripts for both cases (system installed
readline; and inside bash src readline) for the future releases. (by the
way, the same situation we have in GCC with gmp)

I will try to use AC_TRY_COMPILE. Unfortunately I have not enough time now
but I hope I will find time slot for this in the nearest weeks.

Best Regards,
Andrey K.
