 As it was discussed and mentioned in -
 http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/blfs-dev/2007-July/017567.html
 (discussion goes to August) -
 libedit should be tested for possible conflicts with readline.

 Libedit is listed as an optional dependency for the Dash shell.
 It is also commented out in mysql instructions with a note that libedit
 causes more problems than it solves.

 However that note was for an old unmaintained editline package.

 Currently under testing is going to be used, the editline library in -
 http://www.thrysoee.dk/editline/

 which is under active development.
