When using xmllint --shell, it's nice to be able to hit 'Up' to get to
the previously entered command. That doesn't work for me in the Fedora

  libreadline is GPL'ed . Even if it's not used by the library and just
by xmllint, this annoys me, so I prefer to drop the dependancy on the
package and avoid the GPL tainting. Modify the configure in the spec
file and rebuild if you really care about this.
