I'm trying to understand the relationship of "remake" building process with
the "readline" library. My machine has the "readline" library already
installed, and also I've installed a most recent version of this library.
If I build the remake without the --with-readline option, then it works OK
in the debugging mode (option -X). If I build the remake with the
--with-readline option, the configure warns me, that the readline library
isn't found, and the built remake can't debug. This warning is below:
configure: WARNING: libreadline is needed for the debugger. I'll build
configure: WARNING: with trace support, but you won't be able enter the
configure: WARNING: debugger.
The library exists in its normal location:
afy:> ls -l /usr/lib/libreadline*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 300808 May 6 2009 /usr/lib/libreadline.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Dec 9 2009 /usr/lib/libreadline.so ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Dec 9 2009 /usr/lib/libreadline.so.4 ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 192228 Jul 15 2006 /usr/lib/libreadline.so.4.3*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Dec 9 2009 /usr/lib/libreadline.so.5 ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 208808 May 6 2009 /usr/lib/libreadline.so.5.1*
So - it looks like the --with-readline option works in opposite way.
Also I can't find a way to link the remake with the latest readline library
I've installed myself...
(1) What options/envars should I use to configure the remake to point to the
readline library I want?
(2) What's the role of the --with-readline option?
