I experienced the same with readline installed from source with
prefix  /usr/local. To solve this issue set CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS,

./configure --enable-bounds-check --enable-shared
all/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin6.8-g95 CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include/"
/usr/local/lib/" LIBS="-lcamd"

Hope, that helps.
