[Python-Dev] Adding directories to configure.in for fink?

I discovered that when compiling for readline against a Fink install a 
warning was spit out about the lack of a function definition.  Turned 
out a function that #ifdef'ed a macro was not being triggered because 
configure.in was not catching the header file in /sw/lib for readline.

Since /sw is already looked at by setup.py, is there any way to have 
configure.in do it as well so as to have some consistency?  Or is 
prepending ``LDFLAGS=/sw/lib`` the only way?  If so, does it warrant 
mentioning in the README?
