Attempting to run the configure script yields the following inscrutable error:

configure: error: --with-readline=yes (default) and headers/libs are not available

This occurs at the following point in the processing of the configure script:

checking for readline/history.h... no
checking readline/readline.h usability... no checking readline/readline.h presence... no checking for readline/readline.h... no
checking for rl_callback_read_char in -lreadline... no checking for main in -lncurses... yes
checking for rl_callback_read_char in -lreadline... no checking for history_truncate_file... no

Any suggestions?
