Thanks for the reply and I'm sure you are right but I'm still stuck with
knowing what to do about it.
I think I have a readline:

I couldn't see anywhere on
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/Hacking where it
Ok I can see in config.log that I don't have editline. That sounds very
suspicious. Mind you I'm not sure where to get it from for opensuse.
I'll have a hunt around.
