Jon , others ,
I like to compile.

The main key to my solution was macports:

  - http://chrismiles.livejournal.com/25648.html
  - install mac ports
  - port install readline
  - vi  setup.py

    def detect_modules(self):
        # Ensure that /usr/local is always used
        add_dir_to_list(self.compiler.library_dirs, '/opt/local/lib')
        add_dir_to_list(self.compiler.include_dirs, '/opt/local/include')

  - configure --prefix=/pt/p
  - make
  - make install
