Frankly, I'm surprised you got the `readline' executable to build at
all, anywhere.  That's sort of a `stale' target that I haven't updated
in quite a long time.  It should be either updated or removed.

(The particular problem you're encountering is that rl.c expects its
header files to be installed in <readline/readline.h> unless compiled
with -DREADLINE_LIBRARY, as it is by examples/Makefile.  You probably
have the readline libraries and header files installed on your local
machine, but not on the development machine.  Everything in the
examples subdirectory is intended to be built using examples/Makefile.)
