Does anyone know how to get readline support working for an Intel
10.4.5?

This package doesn't work.

Readline library is already there.  (It's not GNU's, I think it's
NetBSD's.)

Tiger's default ruby installation doesn't use it however.  If you
compile ruby 1.8.4 from the source, irb will have readline support
enabled automatically.

Yes, you are right.

head /usr/include/readline/readline.h
/*      $NetBSD: readline.h,v 1.11 2004/01/17 17:57:40 christos Exp $
*/

However it's not perfectly gnu-compatible. I haven't tried with ruby (I
installed readline 5 from sources), but with GiNaC interpreter it does
not compile.
