I agree; the framework is supposed to be linked in automatically.
Yitzchak, what version of GHC are you running? Is it a development
build or a release?
Also, what is the output of the following commands?
ghc-pkg describe readline
otool -L /usr/local/lib/ghc-6.8.2/ghc-6.8.2 [modified to fit the
location/version of your ghc]
