Do you mean that simply creating the readline shared library fails if
there are unresolved references?  Or that linking a separate program
against readline without also linking against termcap/curses/ncurses

The intent that an appliation run a configure test like that found in
bash (BASH_CHECK_LIB_TERMCAP) and link against the appropriate library.
The check appears in readline's configure script so the example programs
will link.
