I guess I'm a little confused by all this. I took a new box, installed
RedHat 6.0, selecting custom,all (also did a workstation only). Then
installed PostgreSQL 6.5.1 source, compiled & installed. My cursor keys
work fine & /usr/include is full of headers (506) including readline.h. I
don't see a problem with RH package or Postgres. Seems more like the case
of a uniquely buggered machine.
