If the readline is linked in, it looks like it is disabled. Do other
programs work correctly, which use the readline library (bash, gdb)? Is
there anything special in your ~/.inputrc (or /etc/inputrc) file (it
controls the readline behaviour)?

The Readline does nothing within GCL, unless it is expicitly enabled from
Lisp. However, it should be enabled automatically (unless things have
changed in 2.5.0). Maybe the Lisp code isn't executing as it should or
