The problem is here:

/usr/bin/gcc -c -O3 -DGCC_INLINE -Wall -fno-strict-aliasing -fomit- frame-pointer -no-cpp-precomp -DBOTH_GNUPLOT_AND_X11 -I. -I../src/ headers -I../src/language -I/usr/include -o gp_rl.o ../src/gp/gp_rl.c
../src/gp/gp_rl.c:74: error: conflicting types for `rl_stuff_char'

I had forgotten about this detail. Apparently, in Mac OS X 10.4, Apple has a "readline" conflict. My recollection is that, in 10.4, the BSD library libedit makes use of a "readline.h", which is in /usr/ include.

I believe the only feasible way to handle this is to rename this copy of readline.h so it won't be used in the build.
