I doubt that you can fix it without rebuilding, and I'm not certain
what parts you would need to rebuild so it's time for "make clean
install". But first, you have to rerun configure and get it
recognizing that readline/history are available.

That's good. It looks like the test is also for readline.h and
history.h, which on my machine are in /usr/include/readline/. Here is
an grep from my config.cache:

[postgres(at)golem src]$ grep -i readline config.cache
config.cache:ac_cv_header_readline_h=${ac_cv_header_readline_h='no'}
config.cache:ac_cv_header_readline_history_h=${ac_cv_header_readline_history_h='yes'}
config.cache:ac_cv_header_readline_readline_h=${ac_cv_header_readline_readline_h='yes'}
config.cache:ac_cv_lib_readline_main=${ac_cv_lib_readline_main='yes'}
config.cache:ac_cv_lib_readline_write_history=${ac_cv_lib_readline_write_history='yes'}

I'm pretty sure that other folks can help you with more details. Good
luck.
