Sometimes the ./configure scripts have an option to choose what readline
to use. This hxd does not.

NetBSD comes with a readline (in libc) and it is also available in the
packages collection (devel/readline).


You should ask the hxd developers to help by improving their autoconf
script so it can detect your readline.
