You should not have to set libdir when you set prefix.

I am unclear on --wtih-libreadline-prefix, but generally in the autoconf
world when prereqs are not in the standard search path, I invoke

  CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/pkg/include" \
  LDFLAGS="-L/usr/pkg/lib -R/usr/pkg/lib" \
  ./configure ....

So you may want to try that.  Another thing to do is to read config.log
to see what configure is doing.  It seems obvious that
--with-libreadline-prefix=/usr/local should cause the equivalent
CPPFLAGS/LDFLAGS to be used when looking for readline, and if found, to
be added, but perhaps something is amiss there.
