Description of problem:
The plld utility distributed with the pl package needs readline-devel to be installed, as it performs linking with -lreadline.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
It is probably simplest to look at the sources (src/configure.in) and see that, if readline is present, then plld will link with -lreadline.   So either pl should be built in an environment without readline (but this would be a pity) or, for plld to work, both readline and readline-devel are required.

Actual Results:
plld -cc gcc -c++ g++ -ld g++ \
		-ld-options`echo ''  -W -Wall  -g -O2 | tr " " ","` \
		-o ppl_pl ppl_swiprolog.o ppl_pl.o \
		-L../../../src/.libs -lppl \
		-L../../../Watchdog/src/.libs -lpwl \
		 -lm -L/usr/lib -lgmpxx -L/usr/lib -lgmp
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lreadline
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Expected Results:

Ok, I will add the dependency on readline-devel.
