while to recognize it...)

That refers to binary installs because the 1.3.1 RPM was linked
against 4.1, apjaworski's case is a source build. I can't offhand see
what is going wrong there. I have built successfully on 7.2 a couple
of times, readline and all, and repeated it just now. One possibility
is that there is a mismatch between the -devel package and
libreadline. What I have is

$ rpm -qa | grep readline

If apjaworski has readline-devel-2.2* then that might explain things.
