mysql-4.1.X couldn't be compiled using system readline. 
rathamahata@dev mysql-4.1.4-20040718-gcc-3.4.1 $ grep VERSION 
-r /usr/include/readline/ 
/usr/include/readline/readline.h:#define RL_READLINE_VERSION    0x0403          /*

rathamahata@dev mysql-4.1.4-20040718-gcc-3.4.1 $ 
mysql-4.0.X is fine.
