Thanks for doing my job!  I don't know how I missed the above.  When I saw
all of the rl_* stuff being removed from configure.in, I got discouraged
and punted.

Anyway, I'm in the process of testing the attached patch under Cygwin
with readline 4.1 and 4.2 and Linux with 2.2.1 and 4.2.  If all checks
out OK, then I will submit this patch to pgsql-patches.

BTW, a minor variation of this patch should work for Python too.
