compiling python 3.1.2 with local readline fails to get readline - help!

I compiled readline 6.1 myself.

#  ./configure --prefix=/home/apps/python --disable-shared --with-
pymalloc --with-threads --with-pth --enable-big-digits --disable-ipv6
--enable-readline --with-readline=/home/apps/readline/lib/
#  make -j14
modules not installed:
........    readline   .........

Python starts but no readline.

What is the proper configure flag to use a locally compiled readline?
I tried with and without --with-readline and with readline/ and
readline/lib as shown above.
thx for help
