    Revert "* FAQ: New file."
    This reverts commit 0b3d52fae15fe7abb84a86bdcde1ae796ba7b549.
    It was a confusing mistake to create an FAQ file in the Guile
    repository/distribution, because there was already an FAQ page on the
    Guile web site.  The information that was in the FAQ file is now in
    the FAQ web page.

-** readline.c: error: `rl_pending_input' undeclared
-This occurs if the Readline library detected by Guile's configure
-script is actually the BSD Editline project's supposedly
-Readline-compatible library.  The immediate fix is to uninstall
-Editline and install the real GNU Readline instead.  When you do this,
-please note that it probably won't work to keep Editline in /usr and
-install GNU Readline in /usr/local (or some similar arrangement),
-because the Editline library will then still be picked up at link and
-run time; it's best (subject to other constraints) to remove Editline
-For the longer term, please also report this problem to the Editline
-project, to encourage them to fix it in the next release of their
-Readline compatibility library.
