These rules don't seem very consistent. You are mixing platform dependencies,
build options, theoretical, unproven failures of kernel calls, none of which
have anything to do with each other. For example, if readline weren't
installed, then there would be no one who sets COLUMNS, so why look at it?
If you want to allow users to set COLUMNS manually (possibly useful, see Greg
Stark's arguments), then it should have priority over ioctl(), not the other
