So what goes wrong in the autoconf test?

dnl Check which lib provides termcap functionality
  AC_CHECK_LIB(termcap, main, [LIBTERMCAP="-ltermcap"],
    [AC_CHECK_LIB(ncurses, tgetent, [LIBTERMCAP="-lncurses"])]))

All places where we use $(LIBREADLINE) there is AFAIK also an entry for
$(LIBTERMCAP). Ok, the naming might be funny, but it is the libtermcap
functionality we're concerned with here.
