So the question becomes, do you have the libreadline-dev .deb installed?
:-) If not, "apt-get install libreadline-dev", or something like that,
should do the trick.

GHC is in Debian, you probably want to use a cutting-edge release
(i.e. sid or at least woody) to be reasonably current. I must admit I
never compiled GHC, I just "apt-get" it (or RPMfind it nowadays :-( )
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
