This is about testing

1. DoCon works with it.

2. The question is how to `install' Backspace and UpArrow in ghci.

I make it from source by 6.10-candidate and also by itself
-- on Debian Linux.
And  ghci  does not process  Backspace and UpArrow.
./configure  reported 
  configure:2303: checking whether ghc has editline package
  configure:2314: result: no

And the Debian system area shows the files
Please, what is wrong here?
