        If readline is available, guile uses it.  In that case,
        it expects to be able to compile

                   #include <readline/readline.h>

        If you installed readline, and you used the --prefix
        installation option to install it somewhere than /usr/local,
        you must arrange for your compiler to find it by default.  If
        that compiler is gcc, one convenient way of making such
        arrangements is to use the --with-local-prefix option during
        installation, naming the same directory as you used in the
        --prefix option of readline.  In particular, it is not good
        enough to use the same --prefix option when you install gcc
        and readline; you need to use the --with-local-prefix option
        as well.  See the gcc documentation for more details.
