The bash link step doesn't do anything with rpath.

The readline Makefiles set rpath to the installed location of the library
at build time (using $libdir), so if you install it somewhere else that's
going to be wrong. It should probably use $(DESTDIR)$(libdir) if that's
what you use to install your copy of readline.
