I downloaded pg 7.0.3, untarred it, went into the directory, typed:

make install

No libreadline (though I should get it...I'd like to have up-arrow to go
back to previous lines in psql!)

Any other ideas?  

I've downloaded 7.1b3 to try out. Since I won't have any real critical
data in there until March timeframe, I can afford to play with the
latest version. If that fixes it, I'll report back to this list.
