Question PostgreSQL 7.4 can't find readline durring ./configure


Hello,

I'm trying to compile postgresql 7.4 and it says I am missing the readline library. I tried installing readline 4.3 but it still doesn't work. I checked my /etc/ld.so.conf and it lists the correct paths, and I re-ran ldconfig. I'm running redhat 9.

Here is the error message I got from ./configure:
configure: error: readline library not found
If you have readline already installed, see config.log for details on the
failure. It is possible the compiler isn't looking in the proper directory.
Use --without-readline to disable readline support.


Here is part of the config.log that mentions readline:

I tried installing readline-devel-4.3-5.i386.rpm but PostgreSQL still can't find readline.

I'm trying to avoid not compiling without readline.
