Readline on RedHat 7.1 with Python 2.1

I am trying to build Python 2.1 on RedHat 7.1 with readline. I
uncommented the readline line in Modules/Setup, but I get an error about
readline when running make. Python builds and works fine otherwise. But
it is a pain to type in commands again at the interactive prompt when I
want to repeat something. Has any one had luck in getting Python to
build with readline?
