Yup, you need libreadline to support that.

I use a Mac laptop too. Personally, I get the readline sources
(check freshmeat.net for a pointer) and build/install them in the
default way, which drops 'em in /usr/local. This is highly Not Mac
Approved I'm sure, but it gets the job done. You could no doubt also
get readline from the fink project, if you'd rather have something
prebuilt (but then again why are you building PG by hand if that's
what you want ...)
