286    Setting this option causes the \fB-lreadline\fP option to be added to the
287    \fBpcretest\fP build. In many operating environments with a sytem-installed
288    \fBlibreadline\fP this is sufficient. However, in some environments (e.g.
289    if an unmodified distribution version of readline is in use), some extra
290    configuration may be necessary. The INSTALL file for \fBlibreadline\fP says
291    this:
292    .sp
293      "Readline uses the termcap functions, but does not link with the
294      termcap or curses library itself, allowing applications which link
295      with readline the to choose an appropriate library."
296    .sp
297    If your environment has not been set up so that an appropriate library is
298    automatically included, you may need to add something like
299    .sp
300      LIBS="-ncurses"
301    .sp
302    immediately before the \fBconfigure\fP command.
