I attempt to test new build system on solaris/x86 platform and after
applying patch from here: I've been able to boot
and configure the tree. On the other hand build alone fails with:

checking editline/readline.h usability... no
checking editline/readline.h presence... no
checking for editline/readline.h... no

See `config.log' for more details.

Do you have any idea how to proceed or what exactly to install?
