    -> Missing '/usr/include/readline.h' inst.?

yes. If I do a 'make install' in '/usr/src/lib/libedit' on an already
successfully installed 1.4.2 system I see _no_ installation of
'/usr/include/readline.h', but I see a final attempt to produce the
symbolic link '/usr/include/history.h -> /usr/include/readline.h'.

So, where should '/usr/include/readline.h' come from!? The only
'readline.h' source in my source tree is in '/usr/src/lib/libedit'...
