$ grep readline configure.ac
AC_CHECK_LIB([readline -lcurses],[readline],[RLLIBS="-lreadline -lcurses"])
AC_CHECK_LIB([readline -ltermcap],[readline],[RLLIBS="-lreadline -ltermcap"])
AC_CHECK_LIB([readline -lncurses],[readline],[RLLIBS="-lreadline -lncurses"])
   AC_DEFINE(HAVE_READLINE, 1, [readline enabled CLI])
echo "readline           : $BUILD_READLINE"

That is: the readline library is detected, and the output of ./configure
should have reported whether readline was found or not.

$ grep readline glusterfs.spec.in
BuildRequires: ncurses-devel readline-devel openssl-devel
- Add readline and libtermcap dependencies
- Update to support readline

That is: when you build an RPM package, readline-devel is automatically
required as a build-time dependency (was added Tue Jul 19 2011)
