Compiling sqlite3 with readline support
Thanks. But `readline-5`? Well, I tried installing that port. The portfile still exists, but the port command failed to download the needed file after trying about a dozen sites. So it looks impossible to install the port.

I do have readline installed (it's version 8), but your configure line failed to pick it up.

Will sqlite3 not build with readline version 8?
