What I thought might be obvious and easy does not work, BTW...
In the Modules/Setup file I put this...

readline
readline.c -I/home/ej/readline-5.0 -L/home/ej/readline-5.0 -lreadline

re-ran configure and tried the make again. No joy. :(
Now I remember why I ended up using things like Perl & Python in the first
place...
