I have a version that I built myself, with GMP:

Note this version "knows" it is on an ix86 processor, and uses GMP.

Could you confirm Readline support was working "out of the box" ?

It does not on Mac OS 10.4 on PPC (if I remember correctly the version).

The short answer: it does not.

The slightly-longer answer: Apple still has the abomination "libreadline -> libedit" symlink in place on the Intel version of Mac OS X 10.4.

I habitually fix this by removing/renaming the symlink for the library; the include file(s) I leave untouched, as they do not appear to cause problems. With this change, the GNU readline package works just fine (from /usr/local, in my case).
