I ran into identical readline problems. For me appealing to the sysadmin to install readline correctly with rpms or the like was not an option. I needed a personal copy of R which I could update and add packages to at my own discretion. So I

  1. got readline 5.2 from gnu.org.
  2. From readline extracted distribution root folder, called ./configure
    --prefix=/myreadlinehome; make; make install
  3. From R extracted distribution root folder, executed the following configure command ./configure LDFLAGS="-L/myreadlinehome/lib" --prefix=/myrhome CPPFLAGS="-I/myreadlinehome/include/"

Performing those steps allowed me to build a version of R with all the familiar up/down arrow tab completion etc.
