at least for readline, i think it would be a win to have that in in any
case. (i wonder if someone could whack the autoconf people into
recognizing our readline lookalike). 

for sfio, i don't know - if the package doesn't build without it, it sure
should be added to the depends. if it utilizes sfio if it's there... no
