Nice analysis, but we can't hack configure like that. It has to be able
to be fully generated from its sources. I think the other source file
you would need to look at is config/programs.m4. (Not sure about quoting
$ac_popdir - why only that one?)

Also, I suspect we'd want to enable the libedit preference with a switch
rather than just force it, if we want to go this way.
BTW, we've run into issues with readline from a licensing standpoint. It
would be really nice if libedit was supported where practical (I suspect
most mainstream OSes support libedit) since it's BSD licensed.
Why don't we have a libedit configure flag?

    Well, I can code up a configure flag, but that doesn't mean that the
    thing will compile at the end. :)
