From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-0.1.49smp i686)

Man pages for readline don't properly tell the user where to find the
readline.h file.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.man readline
2.It reads the readline.h is in /usr/include. (as in #include <readline.h>)
3.Write program with #include <readline.h>
4.watch complie fail.

I've included a simple readline test program. Notice that I have to use the
line #include <readline/readline.h> in order for the complire to find the
readline.h file. subsituting the #include line for #include <readline.h>
will not allow the test program to compile.

This will be fixed in readline-4.1-9 and later.  Thanks!
