Can you try doing something like

  LIBS="-L/path/to/readline" ./configure
  LIBS="-L/path/to/readline" make

(or set LIBS in config.site?)

[Still, if you were linking against a shared version of readline in a
nonstandard location, then you would need to play with LD_LIBRARY_PATH.]

Why would readline be in a non-standard place?

Yes, it would be :-)
