Apple ships a "readline" emulation, based on "editline".  AFAICT,  
this is a not-very-well-done replacement, and all of my attempts to  
build software that depends on "the real" readline have failed.

I just rename/remove the Apple-supplied version and use the real thing.

FWIW, Apple's readine is part of "libSystem", the System Umbrella
