Great work! Sorry, but I don't have an answer to your .dylib question. You
might try posting it to the Apple unix-porting list

to see if they have an answer. Most of your libreadline.dylib versions are in the Fink directory, or are installed into /usr/local/lib, so it appears that the one with the missing symbol is Apple's /usr/lib version. When you move the /usr/lib version out of the way, then the linker probably finds the
/usr/local/lib version that works.
As Dmitri pointed out in his post this is a BSD
flavour of redline.
I see in the /usr/include/readline/readline.h header:

/*$NetBSD: readline.h,v 1.11 2004/01/17 17:57:40 christos Exp $   */

For what it's worth, on my OS X 10.3.9, I don't have a
/usr/lib/libreadline.dylib; I only have /usr/local/lib/libreadline.a
installed, and I don't recall when or how it got installed, since that
directory is usually empty on a new Mac installation.
Actually I think I got  /usr/local/lib/libreadline.a from installing
the octave 2.1.7 or opendx bynaries from this might also be your case...
Which Fortran compiler did you use, perhaps gfortran? Installed via .dmg
from the website?
Actually I configured with --with-f2c so I think fortran to c translation
is used.
BTW I'm going to port my FEM semiconductor device simulator
written using from "the other brand" to octave, but I will
need some substitute for the pdetool plotting functions.
It seems very difficult to use gnuplot for that purpose
so I considered two options:

1) Octaviz, but I've not been able to build that on tiger
2) Opendx, but I would need some kind of octave/dx communication
such at that present for gnuplot...

Any suggestions or any other options?
