Sorry if this has been asked before, but is it currently possible for
the readline libraries to be found by configure by default, using the
mingw development environment?
If so, where do the libraries and include files need to be installed? In
searching the list, the references all seem to indicate that a path to
readline needs to be provided.

The mingw environment, does not put /usr/include and /usr/local/include
in the include paths, and /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib in the library
An explanation of this is found in:
http://www.mingw.org/wiki/IncludePathHOWTO . Perhaps an addition to the
unix/platforms document for mingw could explain that in order to build
in the mingw environment, these paths need to be included either by
flags to the compiler, by setting environment variables in .profile, or
installing readline and termcap in the locations in the top level mingw
