This sounds like a bug in the way we have packaged racket.  If that's
the case, then somebody probably needs to change the package definition
so that we build in readline support.  It shouldn't be necessary for you
to install readline into your profile after the fact.  Similarly, it
shouldn't be necessary for you to meddle with LD_LIBRARY_PATH to get
things working.
