I encountered a readline-related problem for a PostGIS/PostgreSQL  
installation - the Apple's readline emulation caused some complaints  
from PostgreSQL.
In this case, libreadline.dylib in /usr/lib is symlinked to  
libedit2.dylib supplied by Apple, which seems to cause a segfault  
upon exiting from the PostgreSQL interactive mode. Based on  
suggestions on the web, I linked libreadline.dylib with the proper  
version I installed through fink
(/sw/lib/libreadline.4.3.dylib in this case). This fixed it and  
readline works fine now.
