Thanks for your hint - and the others who replied similarly. Yes, I was missing the devel packages and now I have installed them, all is well.

It is possible the compiler isn't looking in the proper directory. ....
The first step is to look at the config.log file for details. But I bet the reason is that you don't have the development headers installed. Install the readline-devel package and try again. Same for zlib (zlib-devel).
