Problem With Readline When Installing Postgres 8.1.4

Hi there --

We are attempting to install Postgres 8.1.4 on an HP-UX 11.11 system. The problem we are encountering is the configure script being unable to find the readline library. The error message is the following:

configure: error: readline header not found
If you have readline already installed, see config.log for details on the failure. It is possible the compiler isn't looking in the proper directory.

We have installed the readline library successfully from source. It is located in the /usr/local/include directory. The directory is in the PATH variable of the user account, root, which is being used to install the database.

We also ran the export command with the following syntax:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

So far we are unable to get around the error.
Does anyone have any ideas.

What does 'config.log' say?
