    But was your Python /built/ using readline?

    How do you ensure that it is?

    Well... I think the practice on the Linux variants is to set various
    options when building Python locally. I'm on WinXP and rely upon the
    packagers to build with everything available <G> (and may need to check
    the documentation of those builds as described by the packagers)

    It may mean ensuring not only that the runtime library is present,
    but that the development library (C-language header files, etc.) are
    installed.
