You need the GNU readline library installed on the machine where you have
Postgres installed.  If you built PostgreSQL without the readline library
(and readline-devel, if you are using RPMs), you may need to rebuild it.
If you installed PostgreSQL as RPMs, you may just need to install the
readline rpm.
