I don't use gcc. I user CC instead. Unfortunatly readline is not present in
either Solaris 7 or 8.
I had to built it from scratch and includ it in my PostgreSQL distribution;
I didn't want to go the --without-readline way.

As for the configuration of the dynamic linker, I did not touch it at all. I
have configured PostgreSQL (./configure script) with the
appropriate --with-includes and --with-libraries options. Is there anything
wrong with this configuration?

Thanks for you comment anyway; I might get to configure the dynamic linker
if I ever get the root password!!!

Specifically, I'd bet that libreadline is in /usr/local/lib, which gcc
will search by default during linking (if it was built with default
configuration).  If you don't have the dynamic linker configured to use
the same search path as gcc, you're in for lots of trouble.
