OSX: Installing GNU Readline support


Sometimes, the gnu readline stuff is useful.

To install it:

  1. Download the latest readlines source
  2. A mod must be made to compensate for a file location change in 10.2 which affects the 4.3 makefile. To fix this, edit support/shobj-conf to change line 151 from:
         SHLIB_LIBS='-lSystem'
    

to:

         SHLIB_LIBS='-lSystem -lncurses -lcc_dynamic'
  1. ./configure
  2. make
  3. sudo make install
