#160 --with-readline is silently ignored

Hi,

I had invoked ./configure --with-readline ...

However, the scripts could find neither termcap nor
curses (looking for tgetent). As a result,
--with-readline was silently ignored, and Makefile
contained instructions for building noreadline.o
instead.

It's only by running CLISP that I discovered the
problem. I think the inability to build with readline
should be reported by the scripst, and either
configure(?), makemake or Makefile error out.

Regards,
Jörg Höhle.

    thank you for your bug report.
    the bug has been fixed in the CVS tree.
    you can either wait for the next release (recommended)
    or check out the current CVS tree (see http://clisp.cons.org\)
    and build CLISP from the sources (be advised that between
    releases the CVS tree is very unstable and may not even build
    on your platform).
