Compiling sqlite3 with readline support
Update: I tried again with a pristine install of NetBSD 9.1.

configure does not get dependencies wrong, that was another problem. 

So the recipe is now simply:

1. Pristine default install of NetBSD with pkg_src and pkgin
2. pkgin install tcl
3. ln -s /usr/include/readline editline
4. ./configure ; make

This gives a correct binary (with a tlcstubs complaint on this platform, but that's a problem for another post. Some Linux distro maintainers asked me about that too.)

The editline options in configure need to be reviewed carefully to get around the readline/editline switcharoo, which as I said I think applies to several other platforms.
