I was trying to "do the right thing" and report whatever was broken in
the ghc bootstrapping process :) But shortly after my post I broke down
and installed readline-compat (which on Suse 9.2 luckily happens to have
libreadline.so.4), which fixes my problem on x86.
Unfortunately I'm still stuck on x86-64, since there are no "official"
binaries to bootstrap from on that platform. But at least I have a ghc
to play with while waiting for x86-64 to become official.
Thanks for the assistance,
