readline on leopard

Trying to get gnu readline to work on leopard so you can compile stuff that needs it?

Download it, ./configure;make;sudo make install as normal.

Before you run configure on your app, you need to set:

export LDFLAGS=”-search_paths_first -L/usr/local/lib”

export CPPFLAGS=”-I/usr/local/include”

So your new version is picked up. This isn’t an issue on Snow Leopard, for some reason.
