no need to submit a bug, since this is most probably not a bug of
PostgreSQL. It's more a question to post to the pgsql-novice mailing
list (see <>).

To understand better what is happening, we would need to know more about
your Linux environment. "32 bit Linux" is just too little :-)

This tells you what to do:

 * either you try to make the readline headers available to the install
 * or you tell the install script not to use readline (run "configure
   --without-readline, as the error message tells).

If you don't know what all this is about (and don't want to :) then
perhaps compiling PostgreSQL is not what you want to do: sure your Linux
distribution has a pre-compiled package to install. To know for sure,
we'd have again to know more about your Linux installation.
