I had the same problem last year. the readline library was there but
the configuration script didn't detect it correctly. I finished by
tracking the location in the script where the detection was made and
passed the correct location by hand (dirty but effective).

I haven't got the modified configuration file though and have no
access to a fedora anymore.

Sorry for not being a big help.
