If this is all you did, then how was your copy of the readline library
found when linking octave?  Normally, I would expect that you would
need to set LDFLAGS to get your version of readline.

You could have some problems if there is some other version of
readline installed on your system that would be found by the linker
without any special flags and it doesn't match the header files that
you used when compiling Octave.
