Yes; you can hardly build a readline client app from source without 'em.

Hmm, good point. I think you are right, this ought to be pointed out
somewhere in our docs.
(I'd say this is a mispackaging of readline, BTW: installed headers
belong with the library, not with the sources. By that logic a
non-devel RH system would ship with an empty /usr/include tree and you
couldn't compile *anything*. But I doubt RH cares what I think...)
