Have we not seen such posts before from you? Perhaps you need to seek or employ a local Solaris guru (if they exist at `mac.com', or whatever your real but unstated affiliation is).

The information about what is going wrong is in the file config.log, so please study it.

But as it is not finding your readline headers, they appear not to be where you are saying to look. You certainly should not be having /foo/include/readline in your cpp path, just /foo/include since the headers looked for are of the form <readline/history.h>.

You do not want include paths in the library path.
