cannot compile readline back in updated version of gp


   Hello all,

 as I am currently updating  to pari-2.5.1, I cannot enable readline back in even though I'm following the instructions step-by-step at the very end of the FAQ at http://www.math.u-bordeaux1.fr/~kbelabas/pari/doc/faq.html.

  In particular, the "configure" step appareantly works without problems : the output in the terminal includes

...Found libreadline in /usr/local/lib
...Found readline header in /usr/local/include/readline
...Found history header in /usr/local/include/readline
...Found libncurses in /usr/lib/
...Library ncurses needed by readline
Using GNU readline, version 6.2

However, the final step "make install" does not work  and I still get a gp without readline at the end (it's the correct version of gp though).   Make install gets stuck curing the compilation
of the tex files, with the following error message :
