configure does not seem to support --{with,enable}-readline but does 
dynamic checks to see if readline can be used with -lreadline and if 
it also needs -l{termcap,ncurses,curses} to build, so I just added 
to DEPEND, rebuilt both archs, and uploaded both.

Please let me know if there are any issues, or what I should read 
now to know what to check? 

I've sftp-ed !mail and x86{,_64}/release/!ready, received two calm 
emails indicating release, apt update shows units upgradable to 2.14-1 
for x86{,_64}, ran setup-x86{,_64} to install, tested, so should be 
okay to announce?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
