282      Setting this option causes the -lreadline option to be added to the pcretest
283      build. In many operating environments with a sytem-installed readline
284      library this is sufficient. However, in some environments (e.g. if an
285      unmodified distribution version of readline is in use), it may be necessary
286      to specify something like LIBS="-lncurses" as well. This is because, to quote
287      the readline INSTALL, "Readline uses the termcap functions, but does not link
288      with the termcap or curses library itself, allowing applications which link
289      with readline the to choose an appropriate library." If you get error
290      messages about missing functions tgetstr, tgetent, tputs, tgetflag, or tgoto,
291      this is the problem, and linking with the ncurses library should fix it.
