Maybe as a workaround, link libreadline.4.1.so to libreadline4.2.so:

ln -s /lib/libreadline4.2.so /lib/libreadline.4.1.so

if libreadline is in /lib. BTW, on Debian they are called /lib/libreadline.so.4
and /lib/libreadline.so.4.2 and not libreadline.4.1.so or libreadline4.2.so (but I
think this is a spelling mistake).
