xmalloc etc. are commonly used names in GNU applications, regardless of
whether the apps are gnulib-based; for example, Emacs and GCC both have
their own xmalloc, independent of gnulib.  It would be nicer if readline
were compatible with this common usage, without application developers
having to do something unusual in order to have their own xmalloc.

At the very least, if it's really intended for GNU readline to usurp
common names like xmalloc, its documentation should explain how to
work around the problem without having to rename the app's own xmalloc.
