./configure doesn't check for readline.h #90

epitron commented Nov 26, 2009

My build failed because I didn't have readline.h installed. Simple to fix, but there's no indication what's wrong because the GCC output is piped to /dev/null, and ./configure should be checking for its presence.

orionz commented Jan 9, 2010

Exact same problem with ruby.h zlib.h openssl/ossl_typ.h

Sometimes the error messages are helpful, sometimes is deeply cryptic. Either way, ./configure should catch these and fail before compile time.

epitron commented Jan 10, 2010

AND! Error messages from the compiler should always be displayed to the user.
