Description:
------------
While running configure it failed on the line: 
checking for readline in -lreadline... no    
configure: error: readline library not found 
 
However when I check the config.log I see this: 
configure:72928: checking for readline in -lreadline   
configure:72947: gcc -o conftest -O3 -march=pentium4 
-fomit-frame-pointer    
-Wl,-z,now -Wl,-rpath,/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib 
conftest.c -lreadline  -lpspell -lpq -lpanel -lncurses 
-lmcrypt -lltdl -lldap -llber -lt1 -lfreetype  -lpng -lz 
-ljpeg -lfam -lgdbm -lcurl -lz -lresolv -lm -ldl -lnsl  
-lxml2 -lz  -lm -lssl -lcrypto -ldl -lcurl -lidn -lssl 
-lcrypto -ldl -lssl -lcrypto -ldl -lz -lxml2 -lz -lm 
-lodbc1>&5  
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.3.5-20050130/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld:   
cannot find -lpq   
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status   
configure: failed program was:   
#line 72936 "configure"   
#include "confdefs.h"   
/* Override any gcc2 internal prototype to avoid an error.  
*/   
/* We use char because int might match the return type of 
a gcc2   
    builtin and then its argument prototype would still 
apply.  */   
char readline();   
   
int main() {   
readline()   
; return 0; }  
 
 
What I see is the script is using _way_ too many unneeded 
libraries which is causing the script to fail. Rightfully 
yes libpq was installed poorly however it should not fail 
while testing -lreadline 

Expected result:
----------------
I expect the test for -lreadline to only fail if 
libreadline cannot be found. 

Actual result:
--------------
-lreadline test is failing because of another library.
