problem with readline (mac os x)

Here's the relevant bits :

checking for readline in -lreadline... yes
checking for rl_readline_version... yes
checking for rl_begin_undo_group... no
configure: error: readline not found, so this package cannot be built

Looks like it found readline, and then decided it didn't ?

I'm having fairly consisten problems with cabal packages needing  
symlinks in /usr/local to work properly, i.e. it
can't seem to find libraries in /sw/lib where fink puts them.

Is that a cabal problem or a ghc issue ?
