This worked for me on a RH6.0-based GNU/Linux system. I had a little
build problem whereby I had to explicitly:
to get readline.x to be built (the dependences miss this somehow).

You might want to truss/strace and see what library guile tries to link
against, and see (using nm) if scm_init_readline is defined there.

Definitely not for me it didn't, and the intention is for it to be
dynamically linked-in by guile.
