The attached patch skips readline linkage detection if ldd fails. In
that case, linking will be done in the same manner as before r81830.

Please report if the patch allows you to build py3k in the problematic

Your method of detecting readline linkage looks interesting, but I
doubt that I'm going to implement it: These cross platform issues
take an *immense* amount of time, since you have to test on all
buildbot platforms (+ OpenBSD and OpenSolaris), with different
