Ahhh, you mean like an override, which explicitly sets where libvirt
will check for the readline headers and matching libraries?

That makes sense, yeah.  :)

If you're interested in hacking on that yourself, you can crack open
the configure.ac file, and look at the other bits of code in there.

That's how I do most of the stuff in there, by copying other bits
of code and then applying logic+copious testing. :)

Eric Blake (and others) are pretty good at this stuff, so they often
have suggested on how to do things better too.

Your kind of thing, or are you wanting me to have a go at it? :)

(I'll happily leave it for you if you want)
