Re: readline history doesn't work on FreeBSD

It was quite challenging for me to find where the default directories for Windows,
which appear in the binary file, are in the code.
Now, I just remember it was in an unexpected place.
Maybe add to the FAQ how to edit these Windows defaults before compilation ?

On Windows, we have to beware of paranoiac antivirus software,
so please leave the history file default as is.

Mine is set in the gprc file as
            histfile = "gp_history.txt"
