[R] readline 4.2 versus 4.1

Hi there,

I would like to try the newest version of R (1.3.1), under my Red Hat Linux 7.2, which uses the library readline 4.2. 
In some page of CRAN and in the corresponding rpm package, it is stated, when trying to install R, that the readline 4.1
is necessary... 

Shouldn't the newer readline 4.2 be completely compatible with the present version of R (1.3.1)?
Will I have any problems if I force the installation of the rpm package with the readline 4.2 version and not the 4.1?

Thanks for the help!
