Description

The checks for readline.h and history.h are probably now redundant in the top-level configure.ac. The results are used in bootstrap.mk, so check this when we have bootstrapping working for 6.8.

I don't know much about bootstrapping.mk; can these checks be removed now? Doing so will make it simpler to build ghc against editline.

The only readline references now are in mk/bootstrap.mk as far as I can see, and fixing bootstrapping is a separate issue, so I'm closing this ticket.
