This should be detected by configure.  E.g., on my system I get

| checking for readline... yes (-lreadline -ltermcap)

(-lreadline and -ledit are equivalent for computational purposes).
config.log shows:

| configure:3143: checking for readline
| configure:3165: gcc -o conftest -O2 -g     conftest.c -lreadline  1>&5
[ tries without termcap]
| /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/../../../libreadline.so: undefined reference to `tgetnum'
[snip]
| configure:3165: gcc -o conftest -O2 -g     conftest.c -lreadline -ltermcap  1>&5
[ tries with termcap, success ]

Can you check around these areas why it doesn't behave as expected?
